Mayfield's Got a Deal: $10 Mil From County to Move OC-to-Downtown Streetctar to Commerce
|Dallas County Commissioner Ken Mayfield|
I'd planned to make calls this morning to find out where Mayfield plans on getting the dough -- only to see this morning that, hey, Roy Appleton's already done the heavy lifting. Mayfield tells The News the promised $10 mil is a slice of the "discretionary capital improvement program funds set aside for his district," though, of course, he can't do anything with it without the commissioners court's OK. Questions remain, though -- chief among them, is $10 million enough to cover the cost of the reroute, and if the shift even do-able given the fact the feds' OK'd that TIGER grant in February with Houston Street serving as the connector? Plenty of time to answer those questions and others -- three years, at least.
