Town of NormalNORMAL – As part of their omnibus agenda, Normal Town Council members voted unanimously to approve a resolution changing which Town official will handle matters related to Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund (IMRF). Since he became City Manager in 1998, Mark Peterson has handled the duties associated with representing the Town on IMRF matters.

But after the Council’s unanimous vote during their meeting Monday in Council Chambers on the fourth floor of Uptown Station, the responsibilities of handling IMRF matters will become part of Deputy City Manager Pamela Reece’s responsibilities.

IMRF have been part of Reece’s duties previously, but Peterson had final approval. Dealing with such matters now becomes part of Reece’s job scope. A Council resolution in 1998 gave Peterson authority concerning IMRF after he succeeded David Anderson as City Manager when Anderson retired.

Agenda Items Approved: Omnibus agenda items approved by the Council included:

• Approval of minutes of the regular meeting on May 15, 2017.
