All of the information below is from the Illinois Comptroller’s website. See it HERE
Would you invest in a company that fails to issue Financial Reports?
Why would anybody invest in Bloomington – they haven’t issued last year’s statements yet. Tonight there will be a presentation on how this year is going – but no hard data that can be checked!
The note below is still on the Comptroller’s website. The statements from 4/30/16 have NOT been submitted for approval.
Definition of Fraud:
Add Tari Renner to the FRAUD charges. Tari proclaimed at last Thursday’s debate the City has 750 employees – 100 less than the City used to have.
The information below was submitted to the Comptroller’s office by the City of Bloomington.
In 2014 the City had 583 employees:
compare the 2014 spending to 2015:
Spending since 2015 has skyrocketed to support Tari’s 750 employees.
Cutting the budget isn’t rocket science – start with the huge number of new hires! More bureaucrats are un-affordable.
Next, align the benefits of the employees left with the private sector.
Yep, taxes can be cut!
The last payrolls showed 461-463 Bi-Weekly employees and 296-310 Weekly. http://www.cityblm.org/Home/ShowDocument?id=11826
Garbage pickup has been changed to one person trucks and bi-weekly bulk pickup, this supposedly reduced employee time.
Keep in mind – this data is old. Employees as of 4/30/16 is unknown. 750 current employees is only according to Tari, but since spending is over $200,000,000 now – he can’t say 750 isn’t accurate.
Tari loves to proclaim the City isn’t doing anything different from what was done years ago. More fraud – what do all those new employees do Tari?
