The real question that needs to be answered is How much of that money will actually repair a road any where and how much will go into the pockets of corrupt, inept. city and state officials?

It would be instructive to have a full accounting of how the money was wasted and what results were achieved ????

The money has already been spent. They know it went for road repair as the mud and water has been removed. The results are tangible in this case.
