The PIN # of the property taxpayers are demolishing on W Jackson was corrected, otherwise the property wasn’t discussed. The contractor is required to pay prevailing wage since public money is being used. You evidently gave a present to the labor unions and the property owners. Congrats.
For all the anti-religion people who think it has no place in government, ask Mboka why he did a proclamation making 6/28 a day of Muslim celebration.
Must see Public Comment below. This guy thought he should have been allowed to live for free in an apartment the landlord paid for instead of being evicted. He blames realtors for the rise in rental rates. He misses that many landlords quit renting their properties because the City told guys like this they don’t have to pay and won’t be evicted. He’s really upset with his leftist alderman, Danenberger, for taking $1000 from realtors. He also mentioned the mayor took $5000. Schism on the left folks!
Proving yet again Public Comment is for you and the Council doesn’t care, 3 members of the public spoke in favor of the Special Gun Violence commission that got a name change to “Safe Communities” and 5 spoke against it, including 2 members of the PSCRB: Public Safety and Community Relations Board.
The members of the PSCRB need to resign in protest
5 members of this Council think you are useless.
The Bloomington police should be appalled Ward thinks they aren’t doing their job.
At the last Committee of the Whole meeting the council voted 5-4 to hear more. They did not hear more, the 5 members who voted to create this commission said ZERO last night except for Mollie Ward who spewed disdain for anyone who didn’t support it. Don’t miss Mboka stating let’s not engage in debate. Isn’t that Council’s job before voting? Proof it’s fixed.
Before you hear Mollie, this Nextdoor post proves the vote was fixed. Ward has already decided who should be on her commission – including herself:
Below is the entire meeting – it is cued to start at Public Comment. It is worth listening to all of them. Then jump to 1:33:00 to hear the Council members opposed to growing government with this commission when it will accomplish nothing because valuing life can’t be legislated. Guns only recently began to kill more kids ages 1-19 than car accidents, much of that is kids killing other kids. When your taxes go up to pay for the leftist useless programs staff has to waste time on, blame Kearns, Danenberger, Hendricks, Ward, and Crumpler. They voted to replace the PSCRB with Ward buddies.
