Voters turned away a request from McLean County schools for sales tax money. An idea for Soccer Fields and a Recreational Center funded through sales tax is not getting a lot of "buy-in" from public officials. Next up for consideration by the public may be the bus system in Bloomington Normal. WGLT's Charlie Schlenker talks with the head of Connect Transit about that, and about new data showing higher usage than previously thought.
Connect Transit will conduct listening sessions to get public input on all aspects of local transit. The first is Tonight at Bloomington City Hall from 4:30 to 7p.m. The second will be at Uptown Station in Normal April 24th, again from 4:30 till 7. Johnson says these listening sessions will guide route tweaks.
