Bloomington Council Makes Executive Session Minutes Available to Public

The Bloomington City Council took a step to become a little more transparent Monday night.
BLOOMINGTON - The Bloomington City Council took a step to become a little more transparent tonight.

Tom Hamilton was city manager for 15 years, and he recently retired


Now, council wants to share more from closed door meetings that happened when he was in office.


City leaders decided that the minutes from executive sessions would be made a part of the public record.


This means that anyone can see when things like real estate purchases and evaluations, like Hamilton's, take place.


However, some want even more transparency, by making the conversations from those
executive sessions available.



But that was voted down, and has some council members disappointed.


 


 





I think the citizens
deserve to know how council evaluated him, and of course, he's no longer an employee
of the city. I think it's time,” says Bloomington City Councilwoman Judy
Stearns.





The city council hasn’t
ruled out making conversations from the future executive sessions available.
