• "That's only part of it," Armstrong said. "Since all that time passed, our priorities have changed substantially."

    John Stockbauer Drive, Armstrong said. It is in deteriorated condition and the city plans to rebuild it between the Houston Highway and U.S. Highway 59.
    (for the CAT plant)

    He said it's his opinion that the city also needs to reserve money to extend Airline Road east to property that has been offered for a destination university.

    Well, priorities have changed again I guess.

  • Does it matter the BREAKOUT? The State is broke. The county is broke. The city is not flush, soooooo. 22.6 million is a lot of
    funding that can be used for other essential services (other than keeping the local construction companies in business).
    Where are the REAL CONSERVATIVES?

  • I cannot beleive in this county of REPUBLICANS and Tea Party 'ers that no one has said to SLOW DOWN and save the taxpayers 22.+ million dollars.
    If you make the speed limit 35mph, it will be a safe roadway. Ther cost of new signs will be minimal and VPD can write revenue
    tickets to the speeders. Is everyone in that much of a hurry to get out of town?
    I beleive the answer is in the meat of the artical $$$$$$$$.
    The biggest Tax Takers in this county are Republicans.
    I bet a local construction company will get the winning bid (even though thats a farce) and everyone will complain of higher taxes.
    VA, your first paragraph says your opinion.
    When is this county of Conservitives going to walk the walk and talk the talk?
