Village, Skokie Residents and Business File Federal Law Suit Against Evanston

Yesterday, the Village of Skokie, three Skokie residents and a Skokie business joined in filing a Federal lawsuit against the City of Evanston to seek protection from Evanston's demand for a water rate from Skokie residents and businesses that is between 264 and 307 percent higher than the water rate it charges to other municipalities. Skokie has purchased water from Evanston for nearly 80 years, and last fall, after 18 months of negotiations, Evanston abruptly decided on the higher rate for Skokie after charging significantly lower rates to attract new customers. The lawsuit seeks equal protection for Skokie residents and businesses under the law for access to fair and equitable water rates. To read more, please click here.
