Tari Renner has been mayor for 7 1/2 years. On his way out he finally gets around to calling for Bloomington’s dispatch to return to METCOM! Leaving METCOMN was a boneheaded idea and should NEVER have happened. Think government works for you?
Tari, you could have done something much earlier to end calling 911 and getting transferred because the wrong agency got to the call first. How many lives has this cost when seconds matter?
Of course he did campaign twice on fixing the streets. How did that work out Bloomington? Looks like you get a water park and a rebuilt library instead.
Green Top Grocery:
A reader told me he saw a legal notice in the paper. Green Top (still with a Black Lives Mater flag visible from Washington St) currently has a liquor license to sell beer and wine. They now want a PAS license to sell all types of alcohol even on Sundays. Maybe next they can turn the kitchen area into a neighborhood bar, Washington School won’t mind.
Guess the “food desert” destination doesn’t make enough money to keep the place afloat. Do they still send newsletters to their investors? Nobody has sent me one for awhile.
