Press Conference Called to Accept Fiscal Task Force Report

Bloomington, Ind. - On Thursday, July 13, Mayor John Hamilton will meet with members from the Fiscal Task Force to accept their report. Members of the press and public are invited to join Mayor Hamilton and task force members at 10:30 a.m. in the McCloskey Room in City Hall, 401 N. Morton St.

Announced in January, the task force was charged by Mayor Hamilton with reviewing fiscal operations, systems, protocols and resources in the City. They were asked to provide a review and recommendations regarding the following:

  • Are the fiscal systems and protocols appropriate for a city of our size and activities?

  • Are there areas of weakness or vulnerability that should be improved?

  • Is our capacity to manage and forecast our fiscal situation adequate?

  • Are there practical ways our city can better manage and deploy fiscal resources?

Fiscal Task Force members include:

  • Michael Claytor - Past Partner, Crowe Horwath

  • Tedd Green - President, Cook Pharmica

  • Christine Puckett - Director of Budgetary Administration, IU College of Arts and Sciences

Following receipt of the report, Mayor Hamilton will review the information and share the results with the Bloomington City Council and the public on the B-Clear portal of the City of Bloomington website at www.bloomington.in.gov.

Two other task forces were announced in January: the Government Innovation Task Force and the Wage Growth Task Force. Their work is continuing, with reports from each expected within the next 6 - 9 months.
