I’d love to tell you which streets are going to be fixed this year, but the information still isn’t posted on the City website as promised:
I did hear Hershey and Streid Drive are on the list, both badly needed. Don’t forget – the only money they are spending is Motor Fuel Taxes Tari raised since being elected. Evidently all services have to pay for themselves except silly things like huge Connect Transit buses.
As you can see in the video shot below, the Council practiced “social distancing”. (Normal didn’t) Jamie Mathy, Jeff Crabill, and Kimberly Bray attended by phone. City Manager Gleason and the Clerk were at a table – see the left side.
If you didn’t know, Tim Gleason was City Manager of Washington Il when the tornado hit. The County Administrator has a long history in health care. Lots of experience between the two of them.
The most interesting part was the end. Tim Gleason and Tari Renner made a few comments and then Renner asked for a motion to adjourn, Aldermen were not asked if they had comments. It was likely a setup so Jenn couldn’t give her socialist diatribe demanding the City hand out your money. Since she got muzzled she put a video on Facebook instead.
The Council obviously is moving away from her and the radical proposals she spews. How long do you think it will take her to realize the more insane she gets the less likely she is to get any support on anything? I hope not too soon, her show is amusing.
