  1. Stolen cars and tickets
    A friend had her car stolen in north Evanston June 1. The thief left it on a side street blocks away. Since then it has accumulated tickets—until someone reported an ‘abandoned’ car June 8. The license and sticker were still on the car.
    The police said the Parking Service and Police don’t have a way to communicate or cross reference tickets and thefts.
    There was a similar story on the news the other day in Chicago(?) but a longer time his car got tickets.
    With all the car thefts in Evanston you would think they would—or common sense would tell the city this needs to be set up.

    1. Wally say fixed now
      The city manager says the communication/coordination problem [checking if car was reported stolen when ticketed] between the police and parking enforcement has been fixed now
