Every small town in McLean County should pass the same resolution now. See what Leroy passed in 2018 when CIRA wanted to tax the entire County:
Not everyone who uses CIRA lives in McLean County but they aren’t being taxed. Every small town and city in the County can’t afford to have CIRA take more money from the residents. It would hurt their economies.
Do you live in McLean County outside of Bloomington-Normal? Send this to your council and demand they pass this resolution.
Dave Koehler introduced a bill just like the one in 2018: https://blnnews.com/2023/02/27/cira-is-back-to-wanting-county-money/
When they pass this resolution they should have another one opposed to paying for the Bloomington Election Commission. Everyone in the County is paying for it now. It needs abolished.
