Obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, paid to Farnsworth Group:
5/1/12 – 4/30/13 $126,292
5-1-13 – to present $79,081
add the contract approved 11/25/13 of $74,670 for another study and the total so far this year is $153,751
Last night the City Council approved yet another study (not to Farnsworth) – for a hotel in downtown Bloomington. It was only $30,000, but let me tell you what it will say: There is a huge need for a hotel in Downtown Bloomington, and it won’t cost the City a cent. The same things were said about the Coliseum before it was built. Soon Bloomington taxpayers can be a partner in a hotel, just like Normal. I think Renner has a man-crush on Koos. Anything Koos has, Renner wants too.
The City has an Engineering Department. According to the Trial Balance for year ended 4/30/13, this Department cost the City over $2,200,000, the $126,292 might be included as an expense. Evidently, the City Engineers aren’t qualified or are too busy for City projects, so Farnsworth gets the business.
