Most people associate Bloomdale as being a small village and a speck on the map. What they do not realize is the huge turmoil currently going on in such a small village.
We have been residents of the village for several years now and have never seen the town run as it is being run now. We have to question the legality and demeanor of some of our village council members during council meetings.
Over the past several months, resignations have been received from a village administrator, a mayor, two council members and two village solicitors. Doesn't this speak for itself?
The council meetings are open to the public to attend; however, the council does not like to address legitimate questions that we as tax-paying citizens have. It has also dictated that only one question per citizen is "allowed" to be asked of council and in return they beat around the bush to answer it. Executive sessions have become very popular over the past several meetings which are most generally not on the planned agenda. If a topic arises that certain council members do not want to discuss with the public, a spur of the moment executive session will be called to order to discuss as always "personnel." What are the outcomes of most of the executive session meetings? Well, that is a good question, for your guess is as good as ours.
Why did people in those positions mentioned above resign? There have been rumors going around town which do not seem like rumors anymore. Thus, this is why we have to question those council members.
We as residents and tax-paying citizens of Bloomdale do not like how our village is being run. Change is definitely in order. Change is needed. Change is our future.
We strongly urge Bloomdale residents to take a stand and attend the next council meeting on Tuesday, May 25, at 7 p.m. Let's turn our town back into the small subtle village it was known for.
