The Evanston City Coucil met Tuesday night and voted down a $700,000 increase in contributions to police and fire pensions, Evanston Now reports.

Residents also expressed concerns over a potential tax increase, and a business owner reported an employee was threated by a neighboring business owner, according to Evanston Now.
