Bloomington violates their own code

By:  Diane Benjamin

Tomorrow is a Federal Holiday – Columbus Day.  Evidently the Code Bloomington writes for themselves is immaterial.  The City Council is scheduled to meeting tomorrow anyway:

reg meeting

Tari must think he can ignore a Federal Holiday because he is doing this:

Proclamation Recognizing Indigenous Peoples’ Day in the City of
Bloomington on October 14, 2019.

§ 2-203[Ch. 2, Sec. 15] Meetings – regular and adjourned.


Beginning September 2018, regular meetings of the City Council of the City of Bloomington shall be held on the second and fourth Monday of each month at the hour of 6:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers of the City Hall in the City of Bloomington, Illinois, or at such other place in said City as the Council shall designate; provided, however, that should any such regular meeting fall upon any holiday recognized by and under the laws of the United States or the State of Illinois, then said regular meeting so falling on said holiday shall be held on the day following such regular meeting date at the same hour and at the place aforesaid.

Maybe a court would void everything that happens at this meeting because it violated City Code.  Or maybe laws no longer matter in Bloomington.

      If so, what was the response?
