Federal debt now stands at more the $18 Trillion. Bloomington and the County want it higher. Tonight the council will vote to approve a Federal Tiger grants application to expand Hamilton Road and build a Multi-Modal Transportation Center by the Law and Justice Center.
Bloomington can’t afford it, so make the entire country pay instead! After all, if we don’t take it somebody else will.
This link has the City’s plan to fix the roads until 2020: http://www.cityblm.org/Modules/ShowDocument.aspx?documentid=8618 I wonder why the funding source is written in code with no legend interpreting what it means. It must be a secret.
The Coliseum will continue to be subsidized, as well as all the other Quality of Life things Tari and the Council think is so vital. Roads aren’t a priority and won’t be until the elected are replaced.
Maybe the bikers will start complaining about roads. Citizens don’t matter – but the bikers got a Master Plan! When Bike Blono raises a stink, maybe the Council will listen.
Meanwhile, roads aren’t a priority. Call this number to report potholes: (309) 434-BUMP
