The police started this and it could all have been avoided.

Tonight the Board of Estimates will be voting on this “Amending the 2015 adopted Capital Improvement Plan to provide matching funds for the City’s 2015 TIGER grant application and authorizing the Mayor and Clerk to enter into a contract with USDOT to receive and expend the TIGER funds if awarded.” Do you have any clue what this is about and what the extra $10M in would be spent on?
