Council voted to accept a police and fire actuarial pension report that calls for a 2.1% increase in Evanston property taxes in order to fill an $800,000 gap caused by a change in life expectancy actuarial assumptions. No changes were made to the assumed rate of return on pension fund investments, currently 6.5%, even though both funds returned less than that – 3.87% for fire and 5.26% for police.
