LaSalle Street Chicago, IL 60602 REFERENCE: “SHEIKH MUJIB WAY” – Honorary Street Dear Chairman Huels: On July 30, 1997 I introduced an ordinance for the above referenced matter (copy attached for your convenience). This matter is before your Committee with a hearing scheduled for September 8, 1997, and City Council being September 10, 1997. Sheikh Hasina, the Prime Minister of Bangladesh, and members of her family are planning on attending the unveiling of the honorary street sign. However, they need to know the date in order that they can plan their itinerary and make the necessary travel arrangements. In view of the above, I am requesting the installation of the honorary signs pending passage of both the Committee hearing and City Council, as well as publication of the October Journal. Your consideration is greatly appreciated. Sincerely, [Signature] Bernard L. Stone Alderman, 50th Ward BLS/vjs Encl. cc: Mr. Sadru Noorani
