Chopin Theatre to host water forum Monday

IL PIRG and Food & Water Watch 

Last year, the city sold Chicago’s parking meters. The result has been poor service, skyrocketing meter rates, and the loss of as much as $1 billion in taxpayer revenue. Now that the funds from that sale are dwindling, the city is thinking about selling more taxpayer assets, like Chicago’s water system. How would this affect you?

What can be done to ensure safe and affordable water? Join us for a free community forum and discussion about how to prevent another short-sighted sale that could hit you in the pocketbook and threaten your access to clean water.

Special guests include Alderman Scott Waguespack (32nd Ward), Jon Keesecker of Food & Water Watch and Phineas Baxandall of U.S. PIRG. Topics will include the impact privatization has on taxpayers and the public, the experience other cities have had and what can be done to prevent any bad privatization deals.


Monday, April 19, 7-9 pm
Chopin Theatre
1543 W. Division

Sponsored by IL PIRG and Food & Water Watch.
