From the Packet: http://www.cityblm.org/Home/ShowDocument?id=12448
The minutes from the last Council meeting are up for approval. This statement is included. I hope it’s just worded poorly because an investigation happening is the ONLY public information.
These minutes begin on page 27 at the link above. Below are two interesting parts. Think your fees aren’t going up? That depends on who gets elected folks!
The minutes also reflect a discussion by the City Council that lasted over an hour with NO details. (It’s a secret)
More minutes to approve – I haven’t read them all.
The permanent history of Bloomington was NEVER written and approved for these dates! Included in the notes is a statement saying parts were illegible and can therefore not be transcribed. What are they hiding?

So, back in 2009 Karch told the Council $4.6 million was needed per year to maintain street at a POOR level. How much has the City spent since? http://www.cityblm.org/government/departments/public-works/streets-sidewalks/street-resurfacing
PDF page 52 has a discussion of the costs involved when Bloomington left MetCom. Judy Markowitz was Mayor.
See why the minutes were never published?
I don’t have time to read the rest today, if you see anything interesting in them let me know. I did see RIMCO discussed and yes there was a Federal Investigation at the time.
The agenda has more, I just don’t have the time right now.
