2017 numbers are from PDF page 120  http://www.cityblm.org/home/showdocument?id=10626

Total revenue projections are down from last year $211,282, but the entire budget increased $6,000,000

Personal income in 2015 was less than 2014 – page 19 of the 2018 link above. This is before Mitsubishi closed!

Revenue is decreasing, spending is increasing, and personal income is down.  Obviously the tax and spend ideology Renner has used the last 4 years is making YOUR Quality of Life worse!

Below is a list of items Tari has sitting in his pocket until after he wins reelection.  Unless you want more tax increases – this is why you need to get out and vote!

  • Raising Liquor License Fees will be back
  • Share Sales Tax with Normal will be back
  • Downtown Hotel
  • Increases to Sewer and Storm Water rates
  • New Library
  • New City Hall
  • New Aquatics Center
  • Soccer Fields to make Koos happy after Metro Zone?
  • Community Center downtown
  • North Main property will become something that he is keeping secret
  • Complete Streets-narrower driving lanes to allow bike lanes
  • More subsidies for empty buses

.
Do what want Renner’s vision for Bloomington that is hurting citizens?

Bloomington Deserves Better!

Vote April 4th.

  1. Jim Fishers forum on WJBC was spot on today and explains a lot. http://www.wjbc.com/2017/03/08/wjbc-forum-sales-tax/ Hell I stopped buying in bloomington four years ago.

    2016 population’s 76,610 so it’s down @ 2120 people. ( see: https://suburbanstats.org/population/illinois/how-many-people-live-in-bloomington)
    So that’s another – $94,121,640 (assuming per capita didn’t go down). We’ve got no money to fund all of Tari’s dreams. This has to end!

  3. I thought tax receipts were higher than expected because of all the new fees and taxes? Did they take a downward turn recently?

  4. That 1.2 Million metro zone dollars that Bloomington won’t be sending Normal. Will sure come in handy for the core projects.
