County Would Raid Paygo, Regional, State, Federal Transportation Funding to Pay for Pike Trolley Folly
It's more than obvious where funding for Chris Zimmerman's Pike Trolley Folly disaster would come from. Take a look at the agreements between the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) and the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) and the County approved at Tuesday's County Board meeting (agenda items 32 and 38). They're going to raid every fund that's connected with transportation, and some that aren't, to pay for Chris Zimmerman's streetcar disaster. You saw a couple weeks ago how they lie like cheap rugs when it comes to providing taxpayers with basic information about what the Fisette Aquatic Center will cost. They secretly purchased Ballston Park Apartments on Tuesday - seen a press release about that on the County's Web site? So look for tens of millions to be siphoned from paygo, regional, state, and federal transportation funds to pay for Zimmerman's streetcar.
