Although there are a number of items I could FOIA on Bills being paid tonight, I’m not going to.
There is one item the citizens of Normal need to see:
$90,045.67 was paid earlier in September https://blnnews.com/2018/09/04/normals-fleece-tonight/
$60,728.85 in July PDF page 24 http://www.normal.org/ArchiveCenter/ViewFile/Item/3017
$88,020.70 was paid in June https://blnnews.com/2018/06/15/normals-monday-bills/
$46,333.57 was paid in May https://blnnews.com/2018/05/07/normals-handouts-tonight/
That’s $318,827.78 just since May!
(I might have missed some!)
When will the Council say “enough already”? Never – they want the “free” money too.
Normal still wants people who pay Federal Taxes to pay for their underpass. That’s how they got a brand new train station with City Hall above it.
Evidently they will pay whatever they need to for the “free” money.
