Chris Koos had years to destroy the citizens of Normal with higher taxes. Evidently they enjoy it since nobody fights back.
Renner has had only a few years, but he’s making up for it by raising taxes wherever and whenever possible. Your property taxes went up without a peep Monday night.
Send Heartland and the County thank you cards too. Both of them joined the action – why not? It’s so easy to do, just vote and hope nobody notices or remembers.
Next send Jeers to the Pantagraph for not reporting what the Peoria Journal Star did today: http://www.pjstar.com/article/20151217/NEWS/151219465
Peoria property taxes among highest in state
Peoria and Bloomington area homeowners are in the top quarter of property tax payers in Illinois, according to a new report issued Thursday by the Illinois Policy Institute, a Chicago-based nonpartisan research and education organization.
This is the Illinois Policy Institute report the story refers too: https://www.illinoispolicy.org/press-releases/report-property-tax-growth-in-illinois-outpacing-personal-income-growth-31-2/
If you like being taxed to death, stay home again for the next local election. Renner and crew will gladly charge you more for the privilege of living in Bloomington.
Meanwhile, both towns can fire all their economic development people. Businesses just ran from Bloomington-Normal in horror!
