Has Anyone Heard from the Mayor's Budget Task Force?

I am wondering when the Mayor's Budget Task Force will be inserted into the current budget process? If, as I suspect, they are focused on a longer-term outlook for the City of Evanston, I hope that there will be some assurance that our short-term decisions are in alignment with any forward looking recommendations.  
It would certainly be nice to have some communication regarding their progress and intentions. 

Optional budget workshop cancelled

The Budget Workshop tentatively scheduled for Saturday, January 30th at the Lorraine H. Morton Civic Center has been cancelled.

Is Evanston paying too much for tree services?

Evanston’s forestry budget is bigger than Skokie’s. It’s bigger than Wilmette’s.   It’s bigger than Highland Park’s. It’s bigger than Lake Forest’s. In fact it is bigger than all four combined. Only by adding Oak Park’s budget do the combined five city forestry budgets exceed Evanston’s by a comfortable margin.


Community Animal Control Notice

Please be advised that a feral cat colony has been identified at a specific address located in the 1900 block of Grant St. The Evanston Animal Control Bureau will be conducting an on-going animal control abatement process, focusing on the feral cat population at this address.
