Ed Tivador, the challenger in the 1st Ward aldermanic race, says he believes the city should limit its property tax increases to the rate of inflation — something school districts — like the one he runs in Northbrook — are required to do under state law.

The Evanston City Council on average has raised property taxes at twice the rate of inflation over the last four years.

That comment, and more on Tivador’s positions on the issues, in this special edition of “The Reporters,” produced by ECTV.
