Who has the scissors to cut City Hall biz red tape?

Greg Hinz:
What's needed to restart Chicago's job-creation engine?

   I talked about everything from finishing the job of expanding O'Hare International Airport to fixing Chicago City Colleges and thinking more regionally in a story in the latest edition of Crain's.

  But the best question may be why the city won't do one thing that seems mind-numbingly obvious: Cut red tape so entrepreneurs can get started.

   Outgoing Mayor Richard M. Daley took a couple of stabs at one-stop-shopping for permits and the like, but the fact is, Chicago remains an extraordinarily difficult place for someone with a good idea but little time and capital to get on his or her feet.
This is something worth reading. I hope the Aldermanic candidates are seeing this as I think this may be important for jumpstarting our ward's business areas. We should look as busy and active as many such areas are in other parts of the city.
