Issac Thorne will be at the Bloomington Committee of the Whole meeting Monday too. He won’t stick around long since he has to be in Normal at 7:00.
Again, there is nothing on the agenda to allow a vote to reject the Connect Transit budget. Tari’s “Armageddon” claims were just fear mongering. The transit fleece will continue unabated until Renner and Koos are replaced.
Maybe Thorne can explain why his huge over-sized buses are destroying the infrastructure? I’m sure it is happening in Bloomington too. I’ve posted pictures of the north-west corner of Portillos before, the buses just keep making it worse:
Taxpayers are forced to pay more to get their roads and sidewalks fixed while Connect Transit buses destroy both!
Bloomington will also hear a presentation on the affects of the new Illinois budget. Of course there is nothing to repeal the additional .04 gas tax since Bloomington will be getting more from the state when it is raised July 1st.
The Council will all discuss appointments to Boards and Commissions. I wonder if Tari will gravel for Buragas and Boyd to be approved to the Connect Transit Board? The rules for appointments are anybody who approves of Renner’s agenda, it just isn’t in writing. Tari keeps saying he has to appoint 300 people to Boards and Commissions. The documentation includes a list all the Boards and Commissions. I counted he appoints a little over half the amount he claims.
