Leon County Commissioners say they are not sure how President-elect Barack Obama's proposed stimulus would be distributed, but they want to be sure they're prepared. However--they want to be ready with the best plans on the table. Leon County says it hopes to create a list of ready-made projects which could help drive the local economy with national dollars.

Bryan Desloge, District 4 Commissioner said, "We feel like if we can make it a little easier for them and put our best foot forward and show that we've got a combined regional list of leadership that's all on board, ready to do this, that we think our chances actually accessing some of that funds is much better."

Local contributors to these so-called "shovel-ready" projects would be entities such as the education sector and city municipals.

    It wouldn't surprise me if they put Akin Akenyuni in charge, what with his ethics concerning money.

    build parks, provide useless projects, the only way to use the economic stimulus is to create jobs. you create jobs by bringing in business, you bring in business, by getting rid of lobbying. just an opinion
