  1. To Rubber Stamp 7,� $74,670 suppose to be spent on� ? surely the Bloomington City �engineers could done the study,at a far cheaper price!!Start thinking of Bloomington Taxpayer’s when throwing money around !! Bill Dodson

  2. Time to find out who really runs this Farnsworth group, and who in the city council the group really runs.
