The email below was written by the Bloomington Public Library Board President. I redacted who it was written to. It’s the content that is interesting.
Alex was obviously worried about getting the tax increase passed the Board wanted. According to this story, the library didn’t say at the Council meeting why they needed the increase: https://blnnews.com/2017/11/14/downtown-task-force-gets-slapped/
They got your taxes raised.
The email is talking about the upcoming joint meeting of the Library, Council, and Connect Transit. Doesn’t it sound like the Council was purposely left in the dark so the Library could move forward with their plans? I wonder how the media feels since they weren’t supposed to know either!
The meeting didn’t take place until January, this email was written in November. No wonder Tari didn’t appreciate 5 members of the Council cancelling it, planning it was orchestrated long before it took place. Tari held the meeting anyway and accomplished nothing by doing so.
Think this doesn’t happen ALL the time?
