3 days is a measly $1600 to hang out with Durbin, Duckworth, Davis and LaHood. I wonder what this group will be begging for this year? There is nothing better than getting people across the country to pay for your frivolous spending!
Why does Bloomington pay the Convention and Visitor’s Bureau this much every month:
And Normal pays this much:
Is it because the CVB offices are now in the Coliseum so they are just giving the money back every month in rent?
The rent for the 2nd floor above the still empty 1st floor of 1 Uptown Circle goes up every year:
It’s still okay to spike your pension in Normal:
Now for the comedy show:
The Town is charging ahead with Uptown 2.0 even though the first floor of Uptown Circle has been vacant for years, and no proposals to build Trail East or Trail North have been brought forward, and Normal is still renting an entire floor in Uptown or the building wouldn’t have been built.
The Town believes kids ages 3-15 should tell them what they want to see in the future!
The little munchkins with no concept of taxes and the cost of living are leading Normal!
See PDF page 114 and following, the kids did artwork showing their desires. Many creations are pictured, mentioned was Normal should be cleaner. A few want a river, others want the Children’s Discovery Museum bigger a safer. (😯)
One kids must be hearing his parents talk about the roads or maybe he’s tired of them hitting potholes:
The Town must have heard this kid, they are throwing in more money for streets:
The lists of streets is on PDF page 39. That must be the complete list, $1,000,000 won’t pay for all of them.
