At the last Normal Town Council meeting the payment for rent of the 2nd floor of 1 Uptown Circle was much higher than usual. I FOIA’d the invoice. I bet you didn’t know you not only pay rent of over $36,000 a month, but you also pay building expenses. I have no idea when the $89,993.16 deposit was paid, that would take another FOIA. Keep in mind, this building would never have been built without Normal footing a lot of the bill. Meanwhile, the first floor has never been rented. The rent for the second floor also increases every year.
