Mayor Rahm Emanuel has apparently found a way to save the city $175,000 a year.

According to the Chicago Tribune, he's eliminating the stipends paid to the Cable Commission. They did get $20,000 a year. Now, they will get a token $1 for their service.

Stipends will also be eliminated for those people on the Board of Local Improvements. They met once last year but were paid between $19,000- $23,000, according to the Tribune.

Pay for all boards and commissions is now being reviewed.
