Bloomington tonight: How big will Gleason’s raise be?

By: Diane Benjamin

Packet for tonight:

Public Comment and Recognitions might take longer than the actual business part of the meeting. Everything is on the Consent Agenda and won’t be discussed unless an alderman pulls it.

  1. It just absolutely sickens me how much this “city manager” gets paid. I mean it truly sickens me. I have a funny feeling that Gleason (and others like him) could go on extended leave for weeks and weeks and no one would even notice they were gone. Plus, just go look up the pay for city managers in other locations many far bigger than Bloomington and you will see just how overpaid this guy is already.

  2. Confimed establishment brown nosers get paid more. The deeper the nose is in, the more stinky money they get.

  3. Blows my mind know Tim can make this much and not even live in McLean County. Seriously, how is that even legal?

  4. outrageous salary and benefits for a city of this size . Salary is more than the Governor of Illinois makes with A LOT less responsibilities.
