Chicago aldermen gave retiring Mayor Richard Daley a standing ovation at his last City Council meeting.
Aldermen presented a resolution honoring Daley's 22 years in office at Wednesday's meeting and gave him a commemorative crystal bowl.
The aldermen are giving speeches praising Daley and his time in office, calling it a privilege and honor to have worked with him.
Alderman Ed Burke says Daley made Chicago the most livable city in America.
Daley didn't seek a seventh term and his time in office ends May 16. He'll be replaced by former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel.
