It has been obvious for a long time the Town of Normal government exists for itself, not the citizens paying their bills.
The last thing Koos and company want is pesky citizens messing up their plans. Chris Koos has stated Council meetings are “business meetings”, he leaves out the part about being the citizens business. The Council doesn’t exist for any other reason, government isn’t a business.
What if citizens want to get information from the Town of Normal? The Town went to an on-line submittal system awhile back. This is what the screen looks like – note a Birth Date is required. ( I use 1/1/1900). Also note the disclaimer at the bottom.
Bloomington just went to the same system. This is what their screen looks like, similar but a lot easier to understand and no birthdate required. They also don’t have a disclaimer at the bottom:
Get the idea Bloomington knows and believes citizens are entitled
to information while Normal doesn’t?
Here’s the proof!
