I have no idea who is in the Council Chambers because the Town is not using regular video. I do know some of the Trustees are on the phone, it appears they are trying to use video conferencing. The sound eventually got better and then worse again..
Kevin McCarthy read many public comments. Of course he didn’t read them with the same intensity as they were written. Almost all of them were against passing what Koos and company proposed. He read one not germane to the agenda, BLM wants criminals released. The local radicals have no idea COURTS have the power to release people. The Council, Trustees, and the Sheriff do not.
Chris Koos was not in the chambers, according to McCarthy because of his recent cancer treatments. Funny, he was there last week with no attempt to protect himself.
Koos claimed he was in Vietnam to protect rights, he claims the ordinance is to protect the citizens of Normal. Of course everyone opposed is wrong. McCarthy claimed the same because of the “emergency”.
McCarthy proposed an amendment striking Section 11. He claims the ordinance is so the Town can act quickly. Stan Nord and Scott Preston supported striking Section 11.
Koos just cut off comments about the ordinance until the amendment removing Section 11 passed. It passed unanimously. This is gone:
Of course it is still in the City Code so removing it from the ordinance really doesn’t matter.
I will add the video when it’s available so you can hear all the remarks after Section 11 was removed. The amended ordinance passed unanimously.
Meanwhile, doctors in McLean County need to use the malaria drug. This is just one story of how it cures: https://nypost.com/florida-man-with-coronavirus-says-drug-touted-by-trump-saved-his-life
