Congrats Bloomington! Every one of your elected representatives managed to attend the unscheduled Council meeting last night!
Normal wasn’t happy when Bloomington announced Kroger was moving down the road and across the street. The story I’ve heard from numerous sources is that David Hales kept it a secret. Normal had NO IDEA Kroger was even considering moving. Tension between the 2 cities is high because of Hales.
So let’s share sales taxes!
Renner confirmed it’s a done deal last night – it wasn’t on the Agenda. First Steve Vogel floated the idea, then reports started circulating, now Renner claims B/N Advantage and the Economic Development Council (both funded with tax dollars) have issued support. The Chamber of Crony Capitalism (Commerce) will endorse the idea this week.
