More proof the region has it’s priorities all f’d up. Last year we had homeless die in a dumpster and porta potty trying to escape frigid temperatures… the $51 million spent for this 2 mile trolley nobody asked for could have been better spent in so many ways… Who cares about the homeless when the whims of the affluent have to be met?
The latest setback…
” Leaders of the Loop Trolley Co. spent the weekend scrambling to solve a list of problems preventing their long-delayed street car line from running its full 2.2 miles, and then finally agreed on Monday to a key requirement — a $300,000 deposit — first asked of them at least two years ago.”
Loop Trolley leaders scramble to get route fully opened
Trolley leaders met Monday afternoon and approved the purchase of a $300,000 bond to cover demolition of the trolley tracks and electric lines should the project ultimately fail.
