Taxpayer challenge to city's concession agreement with parking meter company whereby city transferred its metered parking system and all parking meter revenue for 75 years, in exchange for one-time payment of $1.156 billion. Court properly dismissed certain claims per Section 2-615 and granted summary judgment for Defendants on remainder of claims. Home rule provision is not violated by compensation provisions of agreement, as agreement expressly reserves city's authority to exercise all its police powers over metered parking system. (HALL and LAMPKIN, concurring.)
