I thought it would be fun this morning to see how long it took to find bulk garbage on the curb in Bloomington. Remember, residents only get pickups twice a year now. Instead of going near downtown (where I heard the garbage piles are everywhere) I went just a few blocks west of Veterans Parkway.
This dump site is awesome, I wonder who the City will ticket since this is on a corner where anybody could have left it:
This family must not get the paper or ever listen to local news. I wonder how much it weighs now completely drenched? The rain had just ended when I took the pic. I wonder if the cushions blew away last night?
It only took 5 minutes to find these two. The City needs a slogan, how about:
It used to be Free
(as in: included in taxes you already paid)

Pay More – Get Less
To anybody ticketed for bulk waste: Make the City prove its your stuff. Anybody could have dumped in your yard!
Heading east on Ireland Grove I ran into this:
TWO police cars directing traffic for a church that doesn’t pay property taxes.
I’m all for churches – more people of faith need to be aware of issues and get out and vote their beliefs!
Seriously, two officers directing traffic? Traffic on Sunday morning isn’t that high. Maybe the speed limit needs reduced from 40. According to Facebook, the new Vale Church has two services on Saturday and three on Sunday. I know I have readers who attend, how many services need police? Is Bloomington reimbursed? Is this a temporary situation?
With two murders last night and two others shot, the police have better things to do.
The soccer complex is right down the road. They occasionally hold huge events. I’ve never seen more the one police car directing traffic there. Same road, but the speed limit is higher.
The question isn’t why two squad cars, why even one?
