Dig This

Des Moines wants $15 Million more than the $750 Million borrowing plan the Big Lug Nut has been touting.

Des Moines' list includes 96 projects worth $765 million.

Des Moines City Manager Rick Clark says...

"I feel strongly that we need to be very thoughtful about how we use those dollars...".

That must be why he makes the big bucks, $198,000 a year, and the scientific community is united in that fact.

West Des Moines submitted $525.7 million worth of projects.

Ames has a list of about 48 projects worth roughly $150 million.

Surprisingly there were few guidelines and most just put out a wish list for their "shovel-ready" projects.

That's ludicrous!
