The packet for Monday is 877 pages! I’m sure the Council will read every word: http://www.cityblm.org/Home/ShowDocument?id=16340
PDF page 294:
Remember how Tari claimed he wasn’t interested in the west-side sports complex?
Evidently Normal didn’t like paying the full cost of the study. Since it won’t be downtown, maybe Tari wants the Council to vote this down to prove to Normal they aren’t interested.
How is Scott Black going to get his water park?
The clerk did finally figure out how to do minutes – just not post them to the City website. The skirmishes between Council members on both February 12th and March 26th are detailed in the minutes. See PDF pages 33 and 46.
There is also a Public Hearing!
Another downtown TIF to redistribute money, projects that can’t generate enough income to pay for themselves must be subsidized. Of course depriving all other units of government of money is just part of the price that must be paid for progress.
There is a lot more, but reading it even makes me sick.
I wonder if Tari will announce a FREE State Farm building?
