Timothy Mayer announces bid for reelection to the Bloomington City Council as Member At-Large
During my six terms on City Council, I have kept a watchful eye on the responsible use of our tax dollars -- while providing the best services possible within our city's budget. It is an honor that the citizens of Bloomington have placed their confidence and trust in me to make good decisions for the betterment of our community.
Throughout my time on City Council, I have focused on providing professional police and fire protection for all citizens, preserving the uniqueness of our neighborhoods, building sidewalks and bikeways, and support for the arts. I have worked to provide efficient sanitation collection and recycling for city households, supported our city's parks and trail systems, and encouraged public transportation through support of Bloomington Transit and the new BT Transit Center. I supported the city's water treatment plant expansion to assure adequate clean drinking water for our citizens and to assure professional waste/storm water management for our City's utility,
I seek reelection to continue that work, as well as, moving forward on finding ways to increase generational diversity in our downtown housing populations, and addressing the need for affordable housing. I will continue my support for social services to needy citizens, work to adopt the Growth Policies Plan (GPP) and update our Unified Development Ordinance (UDO). And most importantly, work to fulfill the dream of building the "Switchyard Park" in the former Monon/CSX switchyard.
Currently, I serve on the Jack Hopkins Social Service Committee, the Community Development Block Grant Physical Improvement Committee (CDBG), the City of Bloomington Utilities Service Board (USB), and am a member of 50 Men Who Care. In past years, I served on the City's Planning Commission, the Council's Sidewalk Committee, the City's Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA), the Buskirk-Chumley Board of Directors, and the Hoosier Hills Food Bank Board of Directors.
I ask the voters for their continued support. I promise to do as I have done in the past -- listen to constituent concerns, do my homework, and make decisions that are in the best interest for the citizens of Bloomington.
