As reported in this story – Normal will reject a bid for a bike share program tonight: https://blnnews.com/2020/07/31/normal-could-have-a-10-minute-meeting-monday/
The previous contract was a 3 year deal with Zagster. I think it is safe to assume this contract wasn’t a revenue cash cow for Zagster because they didn’t bother to bid this time.
The “professional staff” dreamed up the Zagster deal that wasn’t budgeted, it was enacted with a budget amendment – meaning they decided to spend money that didn’t go through the budget process.
Imagine what the “professional staff” are dreaming up now since many of the Town amenities are closed giving them with lots of free time!
Before I show you the documentation, take a look at the minutes. (File this in your brain in case any of these clowns decide to run for mayor) Note nobody voted against this:
Zagster docs: September 6, 2016 – Zagster
.A FOIA would be needed to see how much Normal actually got:
Taxpayers of Normal paid for Bloomington locations!.
Somebody want to FOIA who that “locally hired” mechanic was?
Add this one to the list of failed programs the “professional staff” has wasted your money on. I hope everyone understands “limited government” someday. Taxpayers should not be forced to fund folly to pad resumes of the “professional staff”.
Elections April 2020!
Elect Marc Tiritilli mayor and nonsense will never make it to an agenda.
