The Bozeman City Commission authorized spending $49,140 in federal stimulus money on Monday to install new tennis courts at Bogert Park.

The money spent on the tennis courts is part of $621,000 in stimulus money that the city received through the Montana Reinvestment Act.

This is probably typical of what is going on all over the country. When a local government has money "dumped" in its lap, it will spend the money on "something" otherwise the money will go back.

I guess that building tennis courts will pay some of the stimulus money to the workers building it, but it seems like a waste in these tough times. IMHO Tom

I made a mistake once, but I was wrong?

Eh, why waste the money on roads, infrastructure or silly things like schools?

exactly....we're just scratching the surface now. If any of us had 6 months to read this years budget and post all the pork, we would all be very shocked...

Better yet, how about they send the money back to the feds and handle their own affairs properly. Soft tyranny is killing us slowly.

and that's exactly what it is. The state governments are prostituting themselves in order to feed at the Federal trough. State individuality, law enforcement and taxing policies will eventually all fall to the Fed's if we don't get these people out in the next election. I've never seen such a power grab in all my years of following politics.
