Those guys in DC are not dumb. They saw right through the plan to disguise sewer upgrades that should have begun decades ago as a downtown revitalization project. The only one with any brains was Goran Smijik. He had the sense to abandon the charade.

Oh it was news alright. but as usual they totally missed the story. Too afraid to piss off the mayor and be closed out to all the "exclusive" stories he spoon feeds them. Oye Vey.

No it definitely wasn't a secret but it's a sad state when the city has to try and bury and project in a federal grant pretty much any other city would be financially capable of doing themselves.
