As reported in this story, the Public Comment by Marc Tiritilli was cut from the posted video at the 9/30/2019 joint meeting of the McLean County Board, Town of Normal, and Bloomington City Council: https://blnnews.com/2019/10/07/comment-cut-from-video-tiritilli/
I filed a FOIA Request with Bloomington since they had posted the rest of the video. It only took a few days to get the video posted to their website. It is from a different camera angle, Marc can be heard but you can’t see him speak.
Marc talked about the potential sports complex and the lack of representation on the Connect Transit Board, buying huge buses etc. He points out we aren’t getting good use of the money invested and new Board members are needed now.
Locals need to rethink a sports complex here: https://blnnews.com/2019/09/09/sports-complex/
In case the CVB and EDC haven’t heard, Rantoul just voted to build a sports complex: https://www.news-gazette.com/business/economy/rantoul-village-board-unanimously-approves-new-million-sports-complex/article_67e7c2c4-b65a-5c56-a334-484abf72d010.html
I hope somebody saves the above “promise” that it will pay for itself.
Hear Marc’s comments here (3:05). The roll call is first in case you want to know who attended:
