Bank is never empty
Re: June 25 article “City asks for ways to finance urban rail.”
The story starts: “The Austin City Council, looking at a daunting $1.3 billion tab to build a proposed urban rail system, voted Thursday to spend $100,000 for a study on how to pay for it.”
Really? Just when I think Austin leadership has come up with every way possible to rip off Austin taxpayers, it never ceases to amaze me. Paying $100,000 to a consultant to figure out how to pay for a $1.3 billion urban rail system is just about the craziest thing yet.
But wait, I’m sure there will be more. Must be nice to have a never-empty bank to get money from.
