Due to Christmas the Bloomington City Council is changing their meeting schedule. They will be meeting tonight.
One item on the agenda:
It should be riveting to hear discussion of data that is 8 months old. Congrats Bloomington, you aren’t supposed to know any facts in a timely manner. I wonder if they will mention pension funding or TIF districts?
In other business:
The monkey exhibit at the zoo is going to cost you another $31,919.00. The change order is on the consent agenda.
A Liquor License is on the agenda for 706 N Clinton. It is on the Consent Agenda so it won’t be discussed unless someone pulls it. Emails are included from neighbors opposed, they must not matter.
The Council will be considering property taxes tonight:
The amount the City wants receive is the same but that depends on the final Equalized Accessed Value (EAV). If values are down the rate must go up to receive the same amount. If the EAV is up the rate will go down.
Bills and payroll:
