City Manager: I Found $800,000
In a memo to the mayor and city council members, City Manager Milton Dohoney outlines the funds from which he has collected the $800,000 needed to study the next step in the streetcar project - the route to Uptown. The study's necessary before moving on to asking for money to fund the project.
The monies are "no longer needed for their original intended purposes," the memo says, and will be earmarked for the new Uptown Streetcar Alternatives Analysis/Environmental Assessment Study. The list was developed, it says, after discussions with and suggestions from representatives from affected departments. Some of the funds are leftover from previous years, as far back as 2002.
Some of the amounts are small, like 40 cents from something called the "Comm/Ind. Revolving Loan Fund" and $102.42 from Defibrillator Replacement 2005. The biggest amount: $213,378.91 from the street improvement bond fund for Columbia Parkway, Celestial to Bains.
