City settles dispute with Home Depot

Nora Shelly, City Editor

The city has resolved its dispute with The Home Depot, with the store agreeing to pay its outlying bills, assistant city manager Marty Lyons said Monday.

The store, located at 2201 Oakton St., previously owed Evanston more than $15,000 in payments for city yard waste stickers that had been sold in the store. The city sells the stickers at various locations, including three Jewel-Osco locations and the Levy Senior Center, 300 Dodge Ave. The stickers, which sell for $1.75 each, must be placed on paper bags for yard waste in order to be picked up by the city.

According to a news release the city sent out last week, most of the invoices the city had issued to the store are more than a year old, in spite of repeated attempts to collect the funds. Additionally, the city spent $119,408.50 at the store in 2015.

Lyons said the store is under new management and agreed to pay the money they owed.
