One prominent story the City of Bloomington uses to push for more money is “We cut over 100 jobs”. It was nice of them to include a chart with the financial statements for the year ending 4/30/14. The statements will be discussed at tonight’s Council meeting.
Here’s the chart: (click it to enlarge)
I highlighted a few lines.
The pencil pushers (City Manager) was cut from 14 and now back to 7. Net (7)
Recreation was cut from 26 to 5 Net (21)
Golf was cut from 40 to 9 Net (31)
Refuse collection turned into solid waste Net (19)
BCPA cut from 53 to 11 Net (42)
Total employees cut = 120
Police and Fire are relatively stable, do you miss the employees that got cut?
