Bloomington City Council Passes Estimated Tax Levy Increases
The Bloomington City Council passed estimated tax levy increases Monday night, for both the city and the Bloomington Public Library. If the final increases are passed, the library levy will go up by $136,000. That's three cents for a $165,000 home. The money would be used to hire a new, full-time position, that would work on community outreach. The council also passed a resolution, calling for state lawmakers to release funding for all downstate transit stystems. Connect transit says it will be fored to shut down at the beginning of the year, if it doesn't recieve state funding.
