Captain,

Don't worry, it's not like it's real money, it's only tax dollars and we all now that those just materialize out of thin air.

FF: that's the way I interpreted it, too. But now the CCLeg has ended up fully funding the entire cost, yet claim the feds are paying for 90%??? And when the feds deny the county's request for reimbursement, due to miscommunication, an unexpected bureaucratic snafu, or some other weak excuse, then what? Remember how FEMA boned Silver Creek after the flood?

If the feds won't hand over the 90% ($296,120) BEFORE the work starts, then the CCLeg should NOT proceed.

The job has not started because until now there was not enough funding in place to do the job.

So they approved money for clearning trees and brush, and three years later it's still not completed and now they want more money to finish it?

With management like this,how can anyone possibly be against selling the airport?

Ahh yes, safety concerns...that'll justify appropriations every time.

In 2010, the CCLeg put $200K into a fund for this very project. Now, they approve adding another $129K to cover the entire cost, yet claim the feds will pay for 90% of the project???

How soon AFTER the work is complete will we learn the feds denied the application for reimbursements due to an "unfortunate" snafu?
