All Tari’s structural deficits put forth only to raise taxes have disappeared. Bloomington is now on a spending spree!
Proposed budget for next year: http://www.cityblm.org/home/showdocument?id=18372
Page 349 and following
According to the last finance report, next years budget only spends $5 million on roads when Jim Karch claims he needs more than $8 million every year to get the roads to poor condition. Here’s $3 million to buy land for a sports complex they already know will lose money!
But they aren’t done:
The following year has even more in the budget:
Coliseum loses money
BCPA loses money
Creativity Center loses money
Sports Complex and Rec Center will lose money
Elect socialists you get socialism. It’s for the good of the collective.
How much is Normal budgeting? For now that’s still a secret.
The roads in Bloomington aren’t a priority because the City Council doesn’t care. Pretty new shiny things are more fun!
