Safe Routes to School Grant Approved in New Haven

Grant funding was approved to build a side walk in New Haven. The proposed project would provide a safe route to school for kids walking from highway 100 to the high school and middle school building. According to City Administrator Steve Roth, The need for the sidewalk couldn’t be more apparent with kids either sharing the road with cars and busses or walking in the grass. This is the second time the city applied for the grant which will cover 100 percent of the 74 thousand 800 dollar price tag. The first time the grant was applied for, it included a side walk to the elementary school with a significantly larger asking price but the city decided to address that problem by including it with the Miller Street phase two project. Roth says he would like for construction to take place over the summer so the side walk would be in place by the beginning of next school year.

It came as a shock to a lot of people to find out that the contract for the Union license office, which has been operated by the Union Chamber of Commerce since the 1970's, was being turned over to a for-profit company based out of Jefferson City.

What happened? It's a classic case of two all-too-common phenomena in the world of government--unintended consequences and the revolving door.
