Cook County Circuit Court records show that Evanston City Clerk Devon Reid is being evicted from his apartment at 429 Custer Ave. for nonpayment of rent.

Reid who makes $64,120 a year as clerk, according to the city’s website, was sued for nonpayment of $1,790 in rent by Hunter Properties, which manages the Custer Avenue building.

Hunter’s attorney Michael Newman says the court ordered that Reid be out of the unit by end of day today.

Reid, reached by phone this afternoon, said he “had to run to a meeting” and didn’t have time to comment on the situation.

  1. City Clerk Unfit

    The City Clerk can’t pay his own rent, yet we entrust him to collect city funds.  Something is wrong here.  This man should be removed from office, he is not responsible.  Why is this even an elected position, is beyond me.
