The Tax Hikers Of Evanston

The good people of Evanston, Ill., awoke to some bad news yesterday:

The Evanston City Council voted 8-1 Wednesday to raise its portion of Evanston’s property taxes by 7.02 percent, an amount Ald. Ann Rainey (8th) said was the highest in the more than 20 years she has been involved in Evanston politics.

Oh, and remind me never to move near the city but get a job within it:

Some of the changes voted on by the council Wednesday night include an $80 vehicle registration fee increase for non-residents who wish to park in Evanston.
