The Town of Normal owns their very own massage chair. It is kept on the 3rd floor in the HR Department. The door is kept closed most of the time so people visiting HR don’t see it.
I’m told users have a sign in before using it, the Town claims they don’t have a sign in sheet. The Town also claims the room is for nursing mothers which is likely true.
Does anybody believe massage chair and pumping go together?
This information was received by FOIA, h/t a reader:
The Town of Normal didn’t receive the chair free of charge, those “Rewards” are a result of spending taxpayer money. Therefore the “Rewards” belong to taxpayers. How many “reward” credit cards does the Town have? What keeps them from signing up for “rewards cards” to get more free stuff? Are they paying fees for the cards?
The Town denied having any pictures of the chair. We are supposed to believe they picked this “reward” sight unseen. They also couldn’t produce a receipt showing points used.
This was the follow-up FOIA request:
I am requesting a copy of the receipt showing points which enabled the town to procure the massage chair that is part of the wellness program. I would also like a picture of the chair.
This was the response:
Unfortunately, the terms of your search yielded no results, and therefore this request has been denied.
Anybody buying it?
