Disciplinary Incidents, Suspensions Down at ETHS
     Administrators at Evanston Township High School credit a change in philosophy for a decrease in disciplinary incidents and suspensions.
Delay in Request to Build a Road Through Tenth Hole of Golf Course
     The Board of Commissioners has just received word that Item #47 (File #18-1090) – the item concerning Cook County’s request for an easement on District-owned land along the North Shore Channel in Wilmette – is being deleted from the Board agenda and will not be the subject of action at tomorrow’s meeting.
'Cascading' Impact of Closing a Fire Station
     Not only is Station 4 Evanston’s smallest station, it is the only one serving the southwest side of the City.
Ethics Board Finds Jurisdiction Over Two Complaints Against Alderman Rainey
     On Oct. 16, the City’s Board of Ethics unanimously held that it had jurisdiction to hear two complaints alleging that Eighth Ward Alderman Ann Rainey violated provisions of Evanston’s Ethics Code. The Board did not hear evidence on either complaint and did not make any ruling on the merits.
Reaction to City Manager's Proposed Budget
     The most unpopular proposals, judging only from comments at the recent City Council meeting and formal and informal conversations with residents, are those to close one fire station, to  split the Youth and Young Adult Division (see separate stories), to eliminate cultural arts funding and to discontinue operations at Gibbs-Morrison Cultural Center
ETHS Summer School Enrollment Declined in 2018
     Despite the fact that more than one-third of the student population took at least one course during the 26-day summer school program June 6 through July 19, student numbers are down, continuing the downward trend over the past 10 years.

City Manager's Proposed Budget Slices Something From Nearly Everyone
Nearly every aspect of an Evanstonian’s quality of life will be diminished.  Funding for the City’s Mental Health Board, Youth and Young Adult Services, victim services, cultural arts and public health education will be curtailed or eliminated. Residents who wish to drive or park in Evanston will likely have to pay more, possibly making Evanston’s business districts less attractive. Residents who use Uber or Lyft to get around and those who rent their homes on a short-term basis may find they are paying higher fees.
