Bloomington Wants to Keep Its Money
Bloomington city leaders say they're considering a plan to cancel the Metro Zone tax sharing agreement. Bloomington leaders say they've paid seven million dollars to Normal because of the lopsided agreement. The Metro Zone started with the creation of the old Diamond Star plant, it became Mitsubishi, and is now Rivian. But most of the money generated is from shopping and restaurants in Bloomington. Normal leaders say they're open to hear Bloomington's concerns, but they're not sure the city can just cancel the agreement on its own.
