Steve Volan is a gangly but prominent businessman, politician and leader in Bloomington. His nickname is "Tall Steve" because he is well over 6 feet tall. He owns The Cinemat and is on the Bloomington City Council. He also runs a chess club that meets around town.
- In October 2006 Steve Volan arrived at the City Council meeting dressed as a giant chicken. It was meant to coincide with the nearby Halloween holiday and a pending vote on the agenda to ban the raising of chickens in the city limits.
