Isaac Thorne from Connect Transit will do a presentation. He will tell you it’s your imagination the huge buses are empty. Have you noticed the newer buses have dark windows so it’s hard to tell? The rider numbers will be ridiculous, they either have no idea how many people use the bus service or it’s a secret. Nothing is on the agenda to approve or nix the budget. A vote on it can not legally be taken (on purpose).
Remember awhile back when there was a $100 a month lease for 305 S Linden on the agenda? It was taken off for “more work”. No, it’s not back – but taxpayers are still forced to pay this because the staff moved from that cheap building to an entire floor of 1 Uptown Circle:
The first floor of the Circle building is still vacant. When is Normal going to hold the developer accountable? Trail East isn’t needed, Normal can vacate the building and the Trail East future tenants can move in.
More property taxes – it isn’t for Fire Station #2, it is exempt. Whatever this property is the taxes were due on June 3rd, so a penalty for paying late is probably included.
This qualifies as redistribution of wealth, of course yours:
I’ve heard from Town employees who don’t want this gear. Their closets are full of it now:
Hope they had a good time at your expense:
All those free Uptown activities aren’t really free: (click to enlarge)
Normal actually outsources mowing, Bloomington should too. It would be much cheaper than salaries, benefits, and pensions.
How long will the meeting last when the questions start hitting Connect Transit?
Get ready for the show!
I’m sure the Citizens to Ensure Fair Transit will be there.
