BLOOMINGTON, Ill. — Bloomington leaders are giving City Manager Tim Gleason a raise. 

After what many thought was a successful year as manager, the city voted to increase Gleason’s salary by than 3.5%. That means Gleason will make more than $190,000 a year. 

He took the position in July of 2018 and is credited with creating the Economic Development Council among other things.

Council members say they are looking forward to working with him for the foreseeable future.

“Our City Manager in our form of government is kind of the CEO of the operation,” said Council Woman, Kim Bray. “As we reviewed him over a list of over a dozen factors, when we took a critical analysis to an issue, we generally landed on the fact that he had exceeded the expectation.”

Leaders say with Gleason’s help they next hope to expand their capital improvement projects.
