Contact the Council - Town of Normal Giving Away Tax Money To Portillos
After raising the sales tax a full percent and insisting last week that they must raise the property tax by another half-million dollars, the council plans to give Portillos $1.8 million to help them open a new restaurant in town. I'd love to see Portillos open in Normal, but not on a subsidized basis. Normal residents pay a higher sales tax than 92% of the rest of the state and the town just wants to give that money away. Note that the Tartan Group is involved again--the same people the council is giving millions to for other projects. I encourage you to contact your council members with your thoughts and to sign up to speak at Monday's meeting. Read the story in The Pantagraph.
