BLOOMINGTON - Bloomington residents could see slightly lower taxes next year.

The city council tackled several issues, including those property taxes, which leaders say could help attract more people to the area.

Council voted to keep taxes level, with some even seeing a slight decrease in their Bloomington tax bill.

Though the council did not set a specific plan to close the pension gap, it decided it must do so within a five year period.

Mayor Tari Renner says the city needs to get pensions for firefighters and police officers funded as soon as possible, so the burden doesn't fall on future generations.

"And I think as long as you're honest with people and you show them where that money is going to go and that you're being fiscally responsible and it's accompanied with cuts, then I think that people will at least think that it's a good alternative,” said Renner.

The city also met with the economic development council about a plan that will give local businesses a chance to improve their properties, as well as bring new business to town, with a five year tax abatement plan.
