Normal wants to cut the equivalent of 25 full-time employees for a $2.3 million annual savings. This works out to a reduction of over $92,000 per employee. Unbelievable. I know of no major business unit in McLean County, other than Normal and maybe Bloomington (amount unknown), that pays its employees with benefits well over $90,000 per year.
This just shows that many governmental employees are paid well more than the average citizen in McLean County. Why is this? This should upset most taxpayers in Normal. What about Bloomington and McLean County? No wonder the local taxes keep increasing so much.
