City Council Meeting Rescheduled After Technical Issue

Jun 22, 2020

The Bloomington City Council meeting that was scheduled to take place virtually Monday night was rescheduled to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Technical issues with the live video stream prevented public viewing and led Mayor Tari Renner to call for the postponement. The meeting was supposed to start at 6 p.m., but multiple attempts to get the post a broadcast at cityblm.org/live failed.

“We believed that the meeting would resume live and that the issue we were experiencing was only temporary,” City Clerk Leslie Yocum said in an email. She added when “we realized that the issue was not going to be quickly resolved, the mayor called to reschedule the meeting.”

The full agenda from Monday will be covered Wednesday, including two public hearings -- one on an application for a $4.5 million Rebuild Illinois Grant for Phase 2 of the Locust-Colton sewer project and one on amendments to the Citizen Participation Plan.

The 7:30 p.m. start will to allow for 48-hour public notice.

Other items on the agenda include funding land acquisition needed to connect the two sections of Hamilton Road; a 90-day extension of a moratorium on all interest, fines and penalties for late payments; a four-year intergovernmental agreement for household hazardous waste collection and storage; and a new labor contract with Machinists Lodge 1000.
