Stay tuned, Normal is next.
Wirepoints.org analyzed the pensions funding for 175 Illinois communities. Lots of other information is also included.
Bloomington received a “D” rating.
The results prove how much government has grown in 19 years and how the increased revenue wasn’t used for essential items like funding pensions. I will post a link to all 175 results with the story on Normal. I’d hate to wreck the surprise here!
We won’t know the 2020 results for many months. Current data isn’t possible with government. Tari Renner’s massive pension funding increase has Bloomington in worse shape in 2019 than it was in 2003.
