Chicago to Cut Phones in Fight Against Gangs

October 06, 1994| Associated Press

Chicago moved to fight gangs Wednesday by hanging up the phones they use for drug deals. The City Council approved without discussion a measure to ban outdoor pay phones on vacant buildings and lots, outside liquor stores and bars and on residential streets.

The ordinance will result in the immediate removal of about 500 phones, Revenue Director Judith Rice said.
