Normal Mayor Chris Koos has sent a letter to Bloomington city leaders claiming that Normal Town Council member Stan Nord went “lone wolf” and discussed a merger of the two local fire departments and tried to recruit a Bloomington business to move into Uptown.
After opponents of recent changes at Connect Transit rallied below Uptown Station Monday night, Township Supervisor Sarah Grammer and Normal Mayor Chris Koos said their call and response has fallen silent.
The Normal Town Council on Tuesday agreed, with one dissenting vote, to hire a recruitment firm to find its next city manager.
Current City Manager Mark Peterson announced his retirement last month, effective in March 2018. Council members have also worked with consultants Lyle Sumek Associates to distil the qualities they think are important for a city manager.
