If media cared they would FOIA recent emails. I bet they won’t.
I wonder how they gave away 312 when the documents for the April 24th meeting shows purchasing 308: https://legistarweb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/attachment/pdf/1910041/4764_Quote_Premier_Gun_Safes_Redacted.pdf
Documentation for the April 24, 2023 meeting:
Problem: This is a link to the manual for Model SFW123CS:

Go to PDF page 3 of the manual:
The Bloomington police did not keep a list of who they gave certificates to so they can’t contact anyone and warn them. I don’t know how citizens redeem their certificate.
To be fair I called the guy listed on the Premier invoice above – click the link. He did not know this safe can not be used for guns because he didn’t have access to the manual. He only had specifications from the manufacturer that did not include this warning.
If you know someone who stood in line to get a free safe let them know they are not safe for guns. The Bloomington Police will not be admitting they screwed up. They do know, but will not be telling you.

Since government spends other people’s money, they are never as careful as they would be if they were spending their own money. This is why government MUST be limited, they aren’t capable of anything bigger.
