The full City Council met in person on Wednesday to take in some of the last items of this year. A brief recess had to be taken after 34th Ward Ald. Carrie Austin collapsed in her seat.
Video from inside the meeting showed her colleagues running to her chair and surrounding her. A source told ABC7 she is alert and comfortable and at Northwestern Memorial Hospital for further treatment.

The packed agenda does have some items that have made headlines this year, including a multi-million dollar settlement to Anjanette Young, the Chicago woman who was handcuffed while naked by police officers during a botched raid of her home in 2019.

The council also approved sports betting at Wrigley Field, Soldier Field and other Chicago stadiums. Eight aldermen voted against the measure, with some citing concerns about revenue being taken from the city's planned casino.
The ordinance will allow sports gambling facilities within Wrigley Field, Guaranteed Rate Field, Soldier Field, the United Center and Wintrust Arena, or at sites within five blocks of those stadiums.
Two off-track betting businesses could also set up sportsbooks, and one would be allowed in a casino, when it's built.
