Normal is spending more than $5 million to run water to Rivian: https://blnnews.com/2021/01/30/why-is-normal-spending-millions-to-run-water-to-rivian/
Normal Trustee Stan Nord posted the below on Facebook:
These water samples came from residents who pay for water and can’t use it.
The April 6th election is about priorities: Setting better ones. Spending $5 million to run pipes to Rivian when Bloomington is already supplying them makes no sense when other parts of the water system are aging and need replaced now.
Citizens with unusable water should demand refunds. The go-to line from the Town is run your water until it clears. Is the Town going to reimburse the cost of endlessly running water until “it clears”?
The only way the citizens of Normal are going to get spending realigned with the NEEDS of citizens instead of the WANTS of the current leadership is to vote all incumbents out April 6th.
