Remember when the Normal Town Council gave themselves a raise? Koos is making $32,000 a year, Trustees make $6,800.
The meeting last night was less than 10 minutes. Andy Byars and Chemberly Harris didn’t show up. It sure looks like that raise wasn’t needed. They will claim they spend a lot of time outside of meetings. Email them and see who responds.
Of course there was no public comment.
Kathleen Lorenz asked City Manager Pam Reece to talk about the bid disparity in this story: https://blnnews.com/2023/07/17/normal-holding-another-short-meeting/
Reece didn’t add much to the discussion except she thought the two high bidders might be too busy to do the work – hence the disparity. She assured the Council the low bidder could complete the work. Stay tuned.
