Marc Tiritilli has announced he is running again for mayor. The local media apparently is ignoring it, Peoria isn’t: https://www.centralillinoisproud.com/tiritilli-announces-his-plans-to-run-for-normal-mayor
If only twelve more people had voted for Marc three years ago the citizen’s fleece and Koos ignoring the will of the people would already be over.
Obviously the current mayor is fibbing about expenses being approved in the budget and therefore they shouldn’t be discussed at Council meetings, The “staff” creates the budgets with no line-items listed, just totals. Nobody knows what is being paid until the check list is handed out at meetings.

What’s on the agenda?
Keeping the minutes of Executive Sessions a secret.
Abating property taxes for the Shoppes at College Hills
Allowing ISU to use the Gallery space for free
Allowing on-street cafe seating in Uptown
Granting a Special Use Permit to sell cannabis
Appointing a secret person to the Sister Cities Committee. Koos thinks working for free is a personnel issue and is therefore confidential until the vote. In other words, the public can’t object if nobody knows who it is.
