Plumber and Pipefitters Local 99 wrote a letter to Chris Koos upset a water main project was awarded to an out of town contractor – SNC Construction. Tonight this company is being awarded another contract totaling $610,764.92. The disgusting water is getting fixed:

The Water Department’s FY2020-21 budget includes funds for the replacement of water main along Oakdale Ave, Ruston Ave, Margaret Ave and a small section along Grove Street between David Dr and 407 S Grove Street.

The budget for this project was $800,000. I wonder if Chris Koos will claim this in only to fix 4 houses again?


A contract for lining sewers will also be awarded. This one was under-budgeted and will require an adjustment. Total cost: $963,472.80


Legal cannabis is so popular the Normal dispensary wants a special use permit to expand their parking lot:

The Town should have a good idea how much revenue they are receiving. I wonder when they are going to tell us?


Finally – one of the reasons Chris Koos needs booted tomorrow:

Another secret appointment the public won’t know about until after the Council votes:

Normal keeps way too many secrets because they are working for themselves, not the citizens paying their bills.

      1. Mr. Magoo can see through this. What Koos basically said is ‘suck it up, you can deal with brown water until I need a press release for my campaign.’ I’m not sure what’s worse, having brown water while the mayor and Town ignore your pleas for help, or having a mayor and his allies in the media use these same folks for political gain.

  1. That’s the thanks we union people get for supporting them. jab it in & break it off! Award most work to non-union out of town workers to “save” money!
