Local government officials want to be ready when — and if — a share of the proposed massive economic stimulus package being pushed by the Obama administration trickles down to Hernando County.
Some of those hundreds of billions of dollars in assistance are expected to be targeted at building community infrastructure, and county staffers came up with $215 million worth of ways to spend federal dollars on 43 projects.
A final list of 10 priorities, developed by the staff and released Friday, will be discussed by county commissioners during their meeting Tuesday. The county's list includes:
The Glenn wastewater treatment plant
Hexam water treatment plant
Hexam water treatment plant transmission system
Sunshine Grove Road improvements
South Brooksville projects
Southwest Airport Industrial Park
Air traffic control tower
Deltona Boulevard reconstruction
County Line Road improvements
