HUDSON -- Greg McNeil competed with city, county and state officials for Ohio's federal stimulus money and wound up winning $168,323 to silence train horns at a crossing near his home.Here we go folks. Fasten your seat belts, it's going to be wild ride of stupid, excessive, wasteful, useless, make work projects for years...
McNeil's project, on behalf of his homeowners association, was one of only 149 chosen last week by the Ohio Department of Transportation from 2,222 eligible to receive $774 million in infrastructure money. His is the only submission from a private citizen to receive ODOT's nod.
"I tell you, we were ecstatic," he said. "This was just tremendous."
