Here is just one reason Normal raises taxes:

By:  Diane Benjamin

Here’s just a few of the Town’s recent follies:  (there are more)

Portillos give away – $1,825,000 plus interest:  https://blnnews.com/2016/12/02/portillo-town-monday-night/

Greenbriar Shopping Center – $4.8 million  https://blnnews.com/2017/10/16/normal-revised-schedule-spending/

$100,000 to the Mclean County History Museum + $700,000 that wasn’t budgeted:   https://blnnews.com/2017/09/04/normals-funnybusiness-tuesday/

$420,853.49 for new furniture  https://blnnews.com/2017/07/16/you-arent-supposed-to-notice/

Rivian!

Here’s one you probably forgot or never knew:

The taxpayers in Normal paid ISU $500,000 for Hancock Stadium renovations.

 

The only reason Normal wants to raise property taxes is to keep funding their pet projects.

The Town is required to hold a tax hearing.  It will be held December 4th.

If you don’t show up to protest – all increases will be YOUR fault.

    There are so many people, organizations, and companies receiving/enjoying taxpayer giveaways that Koos & Co., in essence, buy each election. How many people have been added to the government payroll since Koos took office? How many more new recipients get $ from the Town of Normal? How many people simply conclude that the ends justify the means when it comes to bankrolling Portillos? Hint: It’s easily the difference in 14 votes (and then some).
