10 COLORADO CITIES ASK FEDS FOR ROUGHLY $2.25 BILLION IN NEW FEDERAL FUNDING
CompleteColorado.com can report that 10 Colorado municipalities have recently requested roughly $2.25 billion dollars in "Main Street economic recovery" programs. Most of the programs deal with infrastructure development, but some requests go far beyond that. For example, the city of Boulder has requested $6 million dollars to retrofit 60 cars in the city, county, and University of Colorado fleet.
CNN originally reported that the "United States Conference of Mayors" asked the Federal government for a grand total $73.2 billion in new funds, but critics say many of the requested projects are nothing but pork.
Interesting notes about the funding requests made by the Colorado municipalities:
The city of Denver requested $341 million dollars in projects.
