Tonight: Town of Normal
Public Hearing on a proposed Property Tax Levy
I expect few citizens will show up to express outrage that their government is not capable of living within their means. The Council and the Mayor are counting on it.
This hearing is required because the Town wants to raise your property taxes 6.44%. The excuse is to pay pensions expenses.
Meanwhile the Council is already plotting Uptown 2.0.
No sign up two hours in advance is required because this is a public hearing.
How many times are you going to be forced to pay for your home? The Town of Normal doesn’t care. Do you?
It was only last August your sewer rates were increased. Think Normal doesn’t have serious problems?
