The actual video of last night’s Normal Council meeting is a little over 8 minutes long. The meeting didn’t start until 1:48 and ended at 7:25, close to a new record.
In that time they approved spending $3,341,358.99 and some other items that couldn’t get a motion and a second fast enough. It appears to be a game between the Trustees to see whose name can make the minutes. There was no discussion on approving the plat, rezoning, or the final development plan for 715-755 W Raab Rd.
Trustee Lorenz did take some time at the end to present an award she accepted on the Town’s behalf in Chicago for the preservation of Broadview Mansion.
