Evanston Mayor Lorraine Morton missed today’s City Council budget meeting because she’s in St. Francis Hospital.

City Clerk Mary Morris says the mayor is undergoing treatment for high blood pressure problems.

She said the mayor has been hospitalized since Tuesday and is likely to miss Monday’s public hearing on the budget as well.

The mayor reportedly went to the hospital on her own and was not transported by ambulance.
