City Hotposts are sort of like checkpoints located throughout Chicago that can be visited to try and become Mayor. To become mayor, you must visit a location more than anyone else in a 7 day period. While it may seem that there is no point to becoming Mayor, you do earn badges for visiting hotposts and a trophy/achievement to finding them all.
