Speakers will explain the advisory referendum on the dissolution of Evanston Township and the referendum granting the City of Evanston the authority to arrange for the supply of electricity for its residential and small commercial retail customers.

In addition, representatives from Evanston/Skokie District 65 schools will make a presentation about the referendum to authorize $48.2 million in bonds to improve and expand existing schools and to build a new kindergarten-to-fifth-grade school in the 5th Ward.
