CHICAGO, June 4 (UPI) -- Chicago city officials say Mayor Richard Daley jumped the gun when he unveiled a street sign honoring Oprah Winfrey.

Daley declared the 100 block of North Carpenter Street "Honorary Oprah Winfrey Way" this spring and ordered the appropriate signs put up, but the Chicago Sun-Times said Saturday the designation has yet to be formally approved by the City Council.

The name change is actually on the council's Transportation Committee agenda for Monday along with about a dozen other honorary street designations.

A spokesman for the Chicago Department of Transportation told the newspaper the rules allow street signs for honorary designations to be installed prior to the council's formal approval.
