Besides other items, Normal will be giving $100,000 from ARPA funds to Carle for the Mobile Clinic that Bloomington already passed giving $150,000 for. https://blnnews.com/2022/06/14/bloomington-minus-2-aldermen/
Normal has an undated Social Media policy: https://www.normalil.gov/DocumentCenter/View/18492/Social-Media-Disclaimer-?fs=e&s=cl
If the Town’s public comment policy doesn’t prove to you Normal does not want to hear your opinions, this policy should confirm it. Waiting until the undetermined end of a Council meeting regardless of how long that might be proves Normal doesn’t care. They hope you get tired and leave.
Commenting on a Town of Normal social media post is no different than public comment. See this excerpt from the policy:
Pam Reece can order your comment removed! Deleting comments the Town doesn’t like is just like erasing you from public comment on video.
