At least the walk will be shorter for Pantagraph reporters if Bloomington City Hall moves some of their offices to the Government Center. Of course we had to find out from the paper: https://www.pantagraph.com//govt-and-politics/bloomington-city-hall-council-meetings-to-move-to-county-government-center
You have to read down to find out Connect Transit may chose the old City Hall building for their new transfer station. Conveniently they would have to demolish it. Gee, Tari has wanted it gone since around the time he took office. I wonder if anybody noticed building “modern” looks really stupid and unusable decades later?
Tari has always been jealous of Normal’s lavish offices, is this the “out” he will use to demolish it the current one?
The article contains this quote from City Manager Tim Gleason::
The story continues:
It make perfect sense to move offices to the Government Center and then move offices already there to City Hall. Right?
Evidently nobody asked the obvious question: With all the empty buildings downtown – why is Connect Transit looking at City Hall? Who told them it’s available?
If Connect Transit does chose City Hall, where will Public Works, Engineering, and Parks staff go?
