I finally made it through all 924 pages of the latest FOIA from Normal.
Marc Tiritilli addressed the Council in person before they voted to continue electric aggregation. Prior to that he sent this email:
I suggest you compare Ameren prices to your bills if you haven’t opted-out. Marc knows what he is talking about!
This email from Pam Reece has lots of information: March 12 Reece email
Looks to me like Normal taxpayers will be owning a derelict building.
The date of this email is March 12th. In January the Convention and Visitors Bureau nixed paying a consultant again to evaluate a sports complex. https://blnnews.com/2020/01/08/is-the-sports-complex-finally-dead/
Kathleen Lorenz and Kevin McCarthy are on the CVB Board: https://www.visitbn.org/contact-us/staff-board/
A solution already exists, the two groups just can’t get along: https://blnnews.com/2020/02/12/this-will-kill-the-sports-complex/
Bloomington appears to not be interested. Last I heard the groups that play at the airport were raising money themselves and looking for land. With close to half of the population of Normal now missing, Normal is likely too strapped to do anything. Of course, debt never stops them from anything.
