Bills: Monday Bloomington City Council

By:  Diane Benjamin

According to the BCPA website, seating capacity is 1180.  I don’t know if that includes the balcony.  Only tiny people can fit in those jammed together rows.  Maybe it’s been fixed, I haven’t been there for years.

On Bills and Payroll for approval Monday night:  http://www.cityblm.org/index.aspx?page=242&parent=9535

RT PRODUCTIONS LLC  INV PERF FEE 2/11/16
BCPA Artist Fee 24,999.00
CHECK TOTAL 24,999.00

The report lists 2/11/16 as the performance date.  According to the calendar, this show is scheduled for the 11th:  http://www.cityblm.org/index.aspx?page=362&recordid=3745  Ragtime the Musical  If the show sells out, the cost to the BCPA for each seat is $22.  The cheapest tickets are $30.  Maybe the ticket sales should be FOID’d after the event.

This show is also listed:

  1. They WANT to charge DOWNTOWN bar owner for late night college students that want to party later, so they have to hire rent a cops. WHY NOT charge the bike riders who USE the roads for the BIKE lanes? WHY should BIKE riders get a “free ride”?? Also, they could FINE the heck out of the BIKE riders IF they get OUT of the lanes! And while we’re at it, why not add a UPTOWN BIKE TAX? Just like when you buy a car, and they send you a bill, do they SAME if you buy a bike, at say VITESSE? Or is all this just way too plain and simple?

  2. Karben: We’re not going to charge bike riders are we? I ride a bike.
    Tarbi: No (as he adjusts his goofy red glasses) not yet.
    Karben: What do you mean by that?
    Tarbi: Just what I said. Not yet. It will come. I want to tax everything! That’s how socialism works Karen. Geesh! I thought you were “in.”
    Karben: (looking perplexed) But I ride a bike Tari.
    Tarbi: I don’t care. I want more tax money to reward to my friends who contribute to my campaign. You can pay more. Emiblia will pay more. She likes taxes too.
    Karben: But you promised transparency and Em doesn’t ride a bike.
    Tarbi: (laughing hysterically) So what! You bike people think you are special? You really make me sick. Useless eaters! People are stupid and forgetful! What do I care? I’ve got two Corvettes! You should get a Corvette Karen. I’ve always wanted one and now I have two! I love it!
    Karben: You really are a jerk.
    Tarbi: LOL! I’ve got two Corvettes and you ride a bike. That’s rich Karben! Lol, lol, lol…
