Does using Federal stimulus funds to design a replacement plan for a road that doesn’t need yet need replacing make sense? Public Works Director Mark Frye thinks so.

We know a lot of people who have hit the economic brick wall these days, and we’re pretty sure none of the people we know work for highly-paid engineering firms that draft up no-bid construction plans for municipal contracts. Maybe we’re totally wrong about that. We don’t know. We’re just a couple of guys who love this city. What would we know about running it?
