Evanston aldermen approved a $4.75 million settlement after a city employee driving a garbage truck struck a Skokie woman’s SUV in Oct. 2016.
The payout was approved at the Dec. 11 City Council meeting without comment from aldermen, and as part of a package of 26 other city business items that included provisions for a beach office renovation, extension of a contract related to a city-owned parking garage, and theater and artist studio lease renewals
Evanston attorneys and other city officials declined to comment when reached after the meeting.
