Bloomington tonight

By:  Diane Benjamin

The meeting is going to be out of order (pun intended) tonight.  Meetings usually end with Mayor and Council comments, there must be a reason for this change:

I’m sure other items will be interesting, but severing ties with VenuWorks piqued my interest.  I don’t know why but the City wrote checks to VenuWorks totally $1600:

venuworks bills

The documentation says nothing about the balance of the $375,000 loan VenuWorks loaned to the City so they could loan it to VenuWorks to remodel the 10 year old facility.  The City has been paying $4999.98 a month for between 45 and 50 months.  To me that means it hasn’t been paid off.  Maybe somebody will ask it tonight.

They claim the termination is because of COVID.  I suspect it also has to do with not living up to expectations.

The pandemic is over:

Extending parking enforcement downtown is back:  (Why would anyone live downtown if there is no free parking?)

I’m sure other interesting items will occur during the meeting, they always do.

  1. YEAH! Let’s make it so HARD to park downtown, that you won’t have time to even get a candy bar. Talk about DESTROYING what you SAY you believe in! I request that TARI now be called Mr “catch 22” ?
    I SAY it, but sure as heck DO NOT endorse it, unless it requires a helmet.
