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/
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.
