Train display budget hits $500K with new grant infusion

Posted: Thursday, February 14, 2013 2:00 pm

The McComb city board will receive an extra $200,000 from the Mississippi Department of Transportation for the restoration of two train cars that have been added to the downtown display and for the extension of the canopy at the display. 

Mayor Whitney Rawlings said at Tuesday’s board meeting that the money will allow the city to extend the canopy to cover a wrecker derrick rail car — a part of the project that initially was scrapped to save money.

    Two hundred thousand here five hundred thousand there. When does this madness stop. Grant money is not free money. It still comes out of our pockets and drives taxes up up up. Throw in a five hundred thousand dollar walking track at the useless FEMA shelter and this madness just snowballs into the wreck that echos through our country. STOP THE SPENDING
