Single bidder led Mayor Emanuel to scrap Midway privatization plan

September 6, 2013 (CHICAGO)

The mayor scrapped the idea because a single bid would not produce a good deal.

The mayor was facing more and more opposition from the city council because of the highly-criticized deal that privatized Chicago parking meters during the Daley administration.
