I hope the citizens who had sewage in their homes show up at public comment. I don’t see anything in the budget or community investment plan to keep it from happening again. Normal did nothing when it happened last year, it will happen again. Don’t be bullied into commenting at the end of the meeting!
Instead of fixing old infrastructure, Normal wants to build new. They will spend $60,000 for a study to extend sewer on West College.
Normal is also spending a lot of money at this and recent meetings on the water system. Did they finally figure out some areas of town have nasty water? Or, do they have other plans they haven’t shared yet?

I wonder if homes without sewer and storm water separated are still forced to pay the Storm Water Rates.
For comparison, below are Bloomington’s garbage rates. Note – everything in Bloomington is more complicated:
