Evanston aldermen on split votes Monday night passed resolutions opposing a reduction in the state income tax and favoring higher taxes on cell phone users.

Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl, who led the push for both resolutions, said that if the state income tax is allowed to fall back from its current "temporary" 5 percent level to 3 percent, it would lead to devastating cuts in state aid to the city as well as a range of other programs.

But Alderman Don Wilson, 4th Ward, said the resolution would send the wrong message to the legislature.

Perhaps blame it on the cold weather -- but Evanston retail sales in February, as reflected in sales tax payments by the state to the city this month, slumped below year ago levels.

The figures from the Illinois Department of Revenue show that sales tax revenue the city received this month fell to $1.08 million, down 6.6 percent from the same month in 2013.

It was the first month this year that sales tax receipts in Evanston haven't exceeded year ago levels.
