Last year the Town of Normal gave away $50,000 and called it Harmon Arts Grants. They are currently taking applications for this year: http://www.normal.org/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=1739
The announcement says the decisions will be made by the Harmon Arts Grant Committee. There is nothing on the Town website saying who is on the committee, so some group is deciding who deserves some of your tax money – we just don’t know who.
On March 1st Normal voted to quit paying for the recycle drop-off locations in order to save $138,000. How many votes do Harmon Arts Grants garner compared to recycling drop off locations?
Normal had just passed a recycling ordinance that made MANDATORY recycling possible. Priorities?
