If you don’t know inflation is caused by the printing of money the Feds handed out across the country, see if Heartland offers a basic economics course. (Too much money chasing too few goods)
Both Bloomington and Normal are meeting on Monday. Bloomington is holding a Committee of the Whole Meeting to talk about two things:
- How to spend what’s left of the American Rescue Plan money
- Hear a presentation on myBloomington App
I hope Bloomington is smart enough not to create any unstainable programs that will burden taxpayers when the money runs out.
Meanwhile, Normal wants to hand Connect Transit $200,000 a year with some of their American Rescue Plan money.

I wonder if anyone on the Normal Town Council will ask why the Town has bids out for ADA compliance at Uptown Circle? https://www.normalil.gov/bids.aspx?bidID=341
Will anyone ask why the Town requested another $6 million for the underpass? Maybe Koos will announce Durbin got him the money. When the nicest amenities belong to government, it proves who takes from you because they can. Obviously their needs come before mundane things like roads.
