How should city spend waste transfer tax funds?


The City of Evanston is seeking public input priorities for budgeting the roughly $1.2 million that was awarded to the city in a settlement with Advanced Disposal, the operator of the Church Street Waste Transfer Station.

Community members are invited to complete a survey online from now through Monday, Sept. 5.

Print versions of the survey are available at the Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center, 1655 Foster St.. the Gibbs-Morrison Cultural Center, 1823 Church St., and at the information desk at the Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave.

The survey can also be completed by phone by calling 847-448-4311.

The survey results will be made public through the Environment Board and its Environmental Justice Subcommittee. City staff will use the survey results and conversations with community members as the basis for budget recommendations to Evanston’s City Council to be included in the Fiscal Year 2017 Budget.
