Actually the City Council meeting lasted 13:26 minutes, that included 2 public comments – Ron Ulmer and Marc Tiritilli.
Guess what got about SEVEN SECONDS before a vote was taken?
Normal has such severe financial issues they are offering early retirements to cut expenses and there is no discussion? Start watching the video around 9:45. The Council members couldn’t move fast enough to a vote. It’s all over by 10:03.
Why would there be no discussion? This is pretty easy . . .
The Council had already discussed it, just not where you could watch. (The private sector would be doing layoffs, but since they can’t tax – they have no choice)
Details will be available at some point – nobody ever said justice was swift.
The Council ended the meeting by going to a Secret Meeting (Executive Session) to discuss buying property! Yeah! More property producing ZERO property taxes.
Watch the intense 13 minutes here – if you can take the drama! (kidding)
