Chicago-Gary Regional Airport Authority
The Gary-Chicago International Airport Authority has overseen the mid-size airport's policies, budget and management since renovations began in the 1990s. While it is located across the state border, in Indiana, because of its proximity to Chicago, the members of authority represent or are appointed by the Chicago mayor (5), Gary Common Council (5) and the governors of Illinois (1) and Indiana (1).
Grades are based on information from December 2019
The first step toward participating in a public meeting is knowing when and where it is, and getting context on the decisions it’s been making.
The Illinois Attorney General has said that all public bodies subject to the Open Meetings Act must provide an opportunity for members of the public to address public officials at open meetings. Public comment periods offer an avenue for people to support or oppose policy decisions and provide information that might not otherwise be represented in a meeting.
No public comment policy available
Knowing the time and location of a meeting is one thing, but it doesn’t necessarily make getting there any easier. Varying meeting times and locations can reduce barriers for attendees.
