The Evanston City Council tonight is scheduled to debate which of five designs — each promoting a different non-profit group — to adopt for next year’s city vehicle stickers.

Here are the five contenders.

City staff are urging the aldermen to just approve one design this year — saying the decision to approve two designs last year slowed up the process of issuing the stickers.

  1. Here’s the sticker design

    Here's the sticker design I want: the kind that goes on your license plate, not your windshield. Or, better still, don't use stickers at all, and use these newfangled things called "computers" to look up whether someone has paid their vehicle taxes. Being forced to deface my beautiful vehicles with these abominations needs to stop!!

  2. None of the above

    What about those of us who don't support (for whatever reason) ANY of the chosen 5 charities?

    Why are we paying for these stickers anyway? The roads in Evanston are worse than Chicago, requests to fill potholes or repair those annoying speed humps go ignored for years (unless you live on the same block as the mayor or your alderman).


    1. Maybe use—

      1. Police escorting the Council out of City Hall

      2. Potholes

      3. Vacant lots

      4. Aldermen holding taxpayers by their heals and shaking money out of their pockets

      5. Photo of Special Interest groups lobbing the Council

      6. Dollar figure for each resident to get us out of city debt hole

  3. We love the Cradle. It helped

    We love the Cradle. It helped us to find our beautiful daughter. They have been an Evanston institution for the past 88 years.

  4. Rockin the Cradle

    The Cradle rocks by volunteer cuddlers, and it may be the best service I have provided anyone/anything in my 67 years of living and my 40 years in Evanston. Volunteer? I'd pay the Cradle to allow me to do it!

    The joy it provides to any and all is limitless.
