Documentation for the 7:00 pm meeting is 648 pages: http://www.cityblm.org/Home/ShowDocument?id=16030
The 5:00 pm meeting is only 35 pages: http://www.cityblm.org/Home/ShowDocument?id=16026
This item is on the agenda for discussion at the 5:00 meeting:
Another City employee complete with benefits and pension!
Then it gets funny because approval is on the Consent Agenda for the 7:00 meeting:
A FIVE year agreement ties the hands of future councils with more non-essential spending.
What if the Council says NO at 5:00 pm? Roads can’t be fixed, but more downtown employees are hired. Mental Health intervention should be mandatory!
Remember the Wire Transfer for buying property?
It looks like the city paid cash for parking lots and now want to finance the purchase.
It’s almost like Bloomington doesn’t believe economic conditions are spiraling down! This item is on the Consent Agenda meaning no discussion.
Bloomington is holding:
PUBLIC HEARING AGENDA ITEM NO. 8A
FY 2019 Proposed Budget
The budget isn’t final as evidenced by the workshop Saturday but they are holding a hearing.
The Towanda-Barnes/Ireland Grove Intersection is back:
Approval of the minutes from February 12, 2018 pulled from approval at the last meeting is NOT on the agenda. Alderman Bray pulled them for not accurately reflecting the Renner kerfuffle. Details: https://blnnews.com/2018/02/13/when-it-happens-to-you/
Is somebody afraid to put in writing what actually happened?
The Consent Agenda has 23 items listed. Spending without discussion – except the Farnsworth items Alderman Buragas will need to recuse herself from.
