Celebrate: More employees getting a higher pension by spiking:
SLBB is Sick Leave Buy Back – a penalty for allowing this will be coming
Seriously? A liquor license for Game Time Gym?
This in on the Consent Agenda, meaning unless an alderman pulls it no discussion will take place.
The Game Time financial statement is included – PDF page 126 and following.
The City claims to be trying to align employee benefits with the private sector. What’s your deductible? 10 times higher? More? (PDF page 237)
PDF page 159 – Minor attempt at fixing spiking?
PDF page 239 – Pay up and you can have a dock at Lake Bloomington!
Expect this fee to double and be annual within 5 years because staff spends too much time on renewals. Apartment registrations doubled, this one will too.
More proof Bloomington is in Illinois – Fees Fees Fees!
See PDF page 309 and following. (Breathing hasn’t made the list yet)
The City expects to raise $225,000 in program cost recovery.
Expect your costs to go up in response. The fee list is TWENTY pages long.
The charts on PDF pages 375-385 might be easier to follow.
I just got off the phone with a friend in Florida. He was at a convenience store today. A “help wanted” sign was on the door. No experience pays $17.50 to start, manager experience $35.00 an hour! Oh, and Florida doesn’t have an income tax.
