The 2016 fiscal year for Bloomington ended April 30, 2016. The only financial information issued so far is the treasurer’s report: http://www.cityblm.org/index.aspx?page=21&parent=36
Issuing financial reports normally takes a ridiculous 6 months. That would be October. It’s now the end of November and still nothing.
Did the City finance department screw up the accounting so bad that auditors were forced to reconstruct everything? Patti-Lynn?
We do know the Coliseum was a disaster since CIAM didn’t even issue quarterly statements for their third quarter. The statements they did issue for 2016 have been taken off the website altogether! http://www.cityblm.org/index.aspx?page=21&parent=6548
Since the financial statements for the Coliseum have always been presented separate from the City, Hales has no excuse for not issuing the City statements – unless he is hiding something. Maybe the Illinois state Police are investigating the City too! Since the City is refusing to issue the financial statements or even comment as to why they haven’t, let your imagination run wild!
Very transparent Tari!
Are they waiting until the data is totally useless?
Don’t forget – Bloomington also quit providing monthly financial information too. Hales won’t be winning any more awards for his City Manager’s reports.
(This almost sounds like Bloomington is part of a communist country! Taxpayers work for them instead of the other way around.)
Four more years of this? Ha Ha
