Stimulus Watch contains the listing of “shovel-ready” projects for which the mayors of cities from each of the 50 states have requested federal stimulus funding. You can click on a project to read (and add to) its description. You can also discuss the project and vote on whether you believe it is critical or not. For a more local view, you can drill down to projects in a particular city. Just choose a state and then a city from the list.
I found two proposed Jacksonville projects of particular interest.
Jax Muncipal Stadium HVAC upgrade
$2,500,000.00 – 10 jobs – Energy Program
Sheriffs Office Gun Range Upgrade
$1,000,000.00 – 5 jobs – Public Safety Program
15 jobs at a cost of $3.5 million? Seems a little pricey even in Jacksonville terms.
