I’ve been hearing for weeks about mowing not being done in many of the Bloomington Parks. I’ve been cutting the City some slack because of all the rain. Not anymore!
You are paying more in taxes and getting less service.
Yesterday I emailed City Manager Tim Gleason and Parks Director Jay Tetzloff asking what the problem is. No response from either so far.
If a park by you is in poor condition, send me pics: email@example.com
Rollingbrook Park: h/t a reader – his words:
What’s going on this year? Rollingbrook Park looks awful. Beyond awful.
If this was privately owned property, the city would have every right to cite you as a nuisance property.
This is adjacent to the tennis courts.
Whoever came out and mowed it last week not only had an issue with one of the blades in their mower deck failing to properly cut that section (leaving wonderful stripes of beaten, but uncut grass), but they half-assed mowed. They skipped the corners, and large areas by the trees. Like this one. That is now 24″+ tall.
