Either Normal is spending money they don’t have because of COVID or they have over-taxed everybody and have a huge stockpile of cash. Without ISU students revenues have to be down, but Normal is hiring anyway. I bet they will say: It is in the budget:
DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS AND COMMUNITY RELATIONS
The starting salary for this position is up to $100,000 depending on qualifications, and the complete salary range is $69,719 to $110,876. This individual will report to the City Manager.
