I been on the ICMA email list for years. ICMA is INTERNATIONAL CITY/COUNTY MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION. This is the place for managers who think government solves problems. All it takes is money, of course yours.
The daily email is a summary of what government is up to, mostly around the country, but also internationally. It reports good happenings, like a new City Manager. I didn’t see one for Tim Gleason though.
Also recapped are policies and news. I can tell you moving to California shouldn’t be an option for anybody who wants to keep at least some of their money. The lunacy there provides almost daily chuckles.
Yesterday’s edition featured Bloomington! Keep in mind this email is not only national – it’s international.
You can see the on-line version HERE
Note what section the story is in:
A lot of the stories look like they were submitted for publication. This one doesn’t since three media stories are linked.
Anyway, Bloomington is now famous across the country and beyond for building a loser. Too bad none of the stories recapped the expectations before it was built.
Maybe the City did submit this story as a For Sale ad!
Maybe buyers are lining up now.
This is a link to the next conference – September 23-26th. David Hales normally went, I don’t know if Tim Gleason plans to.
Featured is Social Equity! Sounds like Social Justice has been renamed.
