Chicago to put unused NATO funds toward parks
CHICAGO – Millions of leftover dollars from the spring's NATO summit in Chicago will go toward improving the city's parks, constructing boathouses along the Chicago River and other recreational projects.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel revealed his plan Saturday to use roughly $7 million – most of it NATO surplus funds.
Emanuel had pledged that city taxpayers wouldn't foot the bill for May's summit, the budget instead being a mix of private and federal funds.
