Number ONE priority of citizens:
Fix the roads!
The budget being considered by the Bloomington City Council has no money for roads except taxes they already increased to pay for repairs:
.04 a gallon gas tax
1/4% Sales tax
The Council will be happy to double the gas tax to fix roads.
Council priorities are not the priorities of the citizens. They want to build a water park instead of doing their job. It is a lot more fun to build monuments to yourself than fund essential services. History shows how their monuments turned out.
From Tari’s first campaign:
Since Tari was elected the first time, the City borrowed $10,000,000 for roads and raised your taxes to pay for repairs. No repairs come out of the General Fund.
Roads are one of the essential services government must do. This Council has no intention of funding roads with taxes you already pay.
You have been lied to.
Are you going to sit back and allow Tari Renner and his buddies on the Council to continue to NOT fund road repairs?
If yes, enjoy buying new tire rims on your way to the water park.
