Because really, what else is there to do at 4:30 in the morning. So I was checking out the capital region stimulus plan, and while a lot of things I had no comment on the necessity of it seems like cameras on Gaines street to the tune of $750,000 is extremely excessive. Especially when the amount of jobs it's supposed to create is unknown. I have copied the table directly from their website (I borrowed some code,) so you're getting verbatim what's up on the site.
|2 Branch Libraries: Lake Jackson & Eastside||$11,000,000.00||unknown|
|Lake Henrietta Trail Connection||$200,000.00||unknown|
|Playground Equipment & Surfacing||$1,000,000.00||unknown|
|Trail Systems Improvements: Upgrade dirt trail system to gravel with a stone dust surface trail system.||$400,000.00||unknown|
|City of Tallahassee - Gaines Street Surveillance Camera System: Per TPD reccomendations for crime reduction.||$750,000.00||unknown|
I haven't read quite enough to give you a rundown on all this, but as someone who sends quite a bit of time on, or around Gaines St. It seems like those cameras are unnecessary.
