While Normal was raising the Sales Tax to provide more money for Connect Transit, CT was busy spending it. Have you noticed all the new green signs?
Below is some of the spending approved at the September 22, 2015 Board meeting.
Instead of asking for driver input on routes, they hired a consultant from California. http://nelsonnygaard.com/
Connect Transit has a “Planner” on staff – Kyle Boehm. Why did they spend $96,542.04 on another one?
Public transportation is needed in Bloomington-Normal. Incomes and opportunities continue to fall as businesses close or move people out. But, we all see the big buses with 5 people on them.
More fleecing by government. They spend your money because they can, nobody is watching.
This clearly shows why creating a park district CAN’T be allowed.
