When a Request for Review is filed, the Attorney General’s office sends the complaint to the government body and lets them respond.
I just received Normal’s response to what I filed concerning their workshop that wasn’t posted.
They claimed it wasn’t a real meeting and no decisions were made. It was supposedly on the calendar, so that was sufficient.
They need to contact the Pantagraph writer then. The article is FULL of decisions. Read it HERE
- The council also agreed through a series of straw polls . . .
- The town also plans to end its electronics recycling . . .
- Other programs are set to be reduced.
- The council rejected closing the pool at Anderson Park . . .
That’s just a few of the decisions the Town lawyer claims they didn’t make.
I asked the AG for a BINDING opinion on “straw polls” since Bloomington frequently uses them too to pretend they aren’t voting on items not on the agenda.

I don’t know why, but the AG is suddenly ruling faster than the years they used to take. Now we wait.
