The City is seeking public input on the community’s priorities for budgeting the roughly $1.2 million that was awarded to the City in a settlement with Advanced Disposal, the current operator of the Church Street Waste Transfer Station. Community members are invited to complete a survey online at cityofevanston.org/transfer-station-information from Monday, August 22 through Monday, September 5, 2016. The survey is available in English and Spanish.
Print versions of the survey are available at the Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center, 1655 Foster St.; Morton Civic Center (information desk), 2100 Ridge Ave.; and the Gibbs-Morrison Cultural Center, 1823 Church St. The survey can also be completed by phone by calling 847-448-4311. For convenience, residents may simply dial 3-1-1 in Evanston.
The survey results will be made public through the Mayoral-appointed Environment Board and its Environmental Justice Subcommittee. City staff will use the survey results and conversations with community members as the basis for budget recommendations to Evanston’s City Council to be included in the Fiscal Year 2017 Budget. The community budget calendar is posted online at cityofevanston.org/budget.
