Village budget debate – From EvanstonNow.com

EvanstonNow.com has collected data from Niles that indicates that it has the lowest out of pocket costs for homeowners in the area.

Though Park Ridge has it own chart of results that show something entirely different.

These charts a quite interesting. But obviously someone is using figures to mislead. It makes you wonder who Skokie is doing.

I think the Park Ridge approach is the most accurate way to do it. They take the total expenditures and then divide by the total number of residents.

Skokie’s annual budget for 2011 was 119,764,929. Its population is 65,066. That generates an average expenditure per person of $1841.

That isn’t so good when you look at comparables from the Park Ridge chart.  Take a look:
