Expenses that can be avoided by eliminating the Bloomington Election Commission:
Renner feeding himself in MARCH:
Remember when America was a melting pot? People didn’t come here to be different, they came to be Americans. Those days are long gone in favor of “diversity”:
Even Americans don’t want to be Americans anymore: https://bn-mclp.org/
There isn’t strength in diversity. Diversity means to divide, free speech is shut down so nobody is offended. Why do so many non-profits only exist because they get tax dollars? All you need to know is the YWCA is involved.
I counted 11 grants this pay period. Click the link and search the word “grant” if you want to see them.
Bloomington is back to holding two council meetings on Monday.
This is the agenda for the 5:30 meeting: http://www.cityblm.org/Home/ShowDocument?id=18594
What land are they buying now? Front and Center? It’s a SECRET meeting, so we don’t know.
The 7:00 meeting might not last long, the first controversial item is the ZBA telling a homeowner his screened in porch can’t be built because it would be 24 feet from the property line instead of 30: PDF page 43 http://www.cityblm.org/Home/ShowDocument?id=18600
None of his neighbors objected at the ZBA hearing. The Council can overturn that decision or affirm it. Since property rights don’t exist, I’m guessing affirm.
It wouldn’t be a Bloomington Council meeting without wanting to spend money downtown, See PDF page 46. The City wants dibs on $250,000 spent on sidewalk and street resurfacing if and when the Downtown Southwest TIF makes money. More bike lanes on Front!
I keep hearing about some plan for the empty Front and Center building, Commerce Bank, and the Elks. If the plan is a bus transfer station the City won’t generate any TIF money because government doesn’t pay property taxes. They keep dreaming of a catalyst project. Building something doesn’t mean anybody is going to come, bus riders wouldn’t be riding the bus if they were flushed with cash. The Coliseum and BPCA have already failed, but they just keep trying. Maybe the government will eventually own the entire area.
