On May 6th when that story was written both the Adelaide property and the empty lot on Ft. Jesse were labeled taxable on the McLean County Assessor’s website. Ft. Jesse still is, Adelaide has finally been changed. Evidently Normal will continue to pay property taxes on an empty lot.
A reader attempted to get information from the Council on May 6th.
Stan emailed Reece when the reader didn’t get a response:
Pam responded to Stan, she’s right. She wasn’t on the original email, just every Trustee:
I sent a FOIA request to the Normal Township for documents about the Adelaide property. The same day I received this:
Pam claims the paperwork was filed in August 2019. The change was approved through the Illinois Department of Revenue in January 2020, County records weren’t changed until May 2020, after the tax bills were printed.
Understand limited government yet?
