South Side Irish Parade Not a Done Deal

The city wants the parade committee to reveal more security details

The Irish Parade on the city's south side is still not a done deal.

The popular parade was canceled three years ago because of rowdiness, but organizers wanted to resurrect it this March.

The city accepted an application for the parade to be held on March 11, but the Chicago Tribune reports a permit will not be issued until the committee pays for city services first.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel's administration also is asking the committee to reveal more details about how it plans to handle security before moving forward, according to the Tribune.

A contract between the parade committee and a security company reportedly has not been written and signed.
