Town of Normal , Unit 5 Joint Committee
Town of Normal and McLean County Unit 5 officials hope resurrecting a joint committee will make both more stable and less susceptible to external obstacles. A Normal, Unit 5 joint committee could meet in August. The committee would include members from both entities, meeting quarterly to discuss collaboration possibilities and keep eachother informed of their statuses. Last year's Rivian Automotive deal sparked an interest in the committee, after Unit 5 expressed frustration that the tax break deal had been sprung on them at the last minute.
