We have an A+ rating from the Illinois Policy Institute for transparency. – Tari Renner
Did is more applicable Tari.
Proof: The Attorney General found Renner and the WHOLE Council guilty of violating the Open Meetings Act by discussing Metrozone in secret. They were ordered to release the audio of the meeting to Jason Chambers.
I filed a FOIA for it 6/16. The City is pretending I filed it on 6/23. That is the day they extended the FOIA request to 6/30. Nice try though.
Today they denied the request. I expected them to since I RARELY get anything I FOIA. Here is their denial: Benjamin FOIA Response on Verbatim Recording
They knew the first time they saw my request they were going to deny it. I don’t mind they waited until today, I love showing taxpayers the quality of the “public servants” who work for the City of Bloomington. (or lack of quality)
They plan to drag this out, maybe file an appeal, get ordered to release it again, maybe get around to it – maybe not.
They are hoping you forget your Council is staffed with criminals.
Isn’t that what people who break the law are? Criminals?
Can somebody take a Council picture and add black and white striped shirts? Orange jumpsuits? A Pinocchio nose for Tari?
Will Chambers enforce the law?
