An advisory referendum question will appear on the March 20 primary election ballot: “Should the Evanston Township Board continue to pursue the issue of dissolving Evanston Township?”
Although the referendum question is only advisory, some residents feel that it should be withdrawn from the March 20 ballot. Evanston residents are “electors” of the Township, and a group of no fewer than 15 electors can call for a special Township meeting.
That has been done, and the special Township meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Feb. 22 in City Council chambers, 2100 Ridge Ave., to discuss the possibility of removing the question from the ballot.
