I thought there was a deadline for City of Bloomington employees to retire if they wanted to spike their pensions, but evidently it’s still happening:
These two employees will receive much higher pension benefits merely because nobody at the City stopped them. This fleece has cost Bloomington taxpayers MILLIONS of dollars because higher City contributions are required to cover the cost.
If voters had abolished the Bloomington Election Commission and allowed all elections to be run by the County Clerk – who voters CAN hold responsible for screwing up – this expense wouldn’t exist:
The City no longer prints the details of P-Card spending. On Monday’s bills are two long lists of charges with no descriptions. The lists are from July and August, see pages PDF 143 and following. Evidently citizens are suppose to trust somebody makes sure employees aren’t misusing their City card.
Do you trust City employees and the people who supervise them?

The way to insure theft doesn’t happen is to make it impossible. Printing many pages of charges with no descriptions doesn’t do that.
All wire transfers used to have details. Now none of them do.
