Evanston aldermen, acting as Evanston Township's trustees, voted Tuesday to postpone action on a request from Township Assessor Bonnie Wilson that she be approved for a pension for her part-time elective office.

Alderman Jane Grover, 7th Ward, made the motion to refer the issue back to the City Council's Human Services Committee, saying it needed more discussion there.

Evanston aldermen, acting as Evanston Township's trustees, voted Tuesday to postpone action on a request from Township Assessor Bonnie Wilson that she be approved for a pension for her part-time elective office.

Alderman Jane Grover, 7th Ward, made the motion to refer the issue back to the City Council's Human Services Committee, saying it needed more discussion there.

The assessor made a public request for the pension at the Human Services Committee meeting in March, where some aldermen also discussed whether, as part-time elected officials, they too might qualify for a pension under the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund.

The Evanston RoundTable has since reported that a document had been submitted to the pension system, signed by City Clerk Rodney Greene, claiming aldermen had already approved such a resolution for the assessor on Jan. 11, 2010.

But the RoundTable reports there is no evidence in the minutes of that meeting that such a resolution was on the agenda or voted on.
