EAGLE COUNTY, Colorado ” Eagle County, Colorado plans to start prioritizing its list of projects it hopes to get federal stimulus money for.
The “A” list will be projects that are critical, the “B” list will be projects that are important and the “C” list will be projects that would be nice to have done, said County Facilities Director Tom Johnson.
County staff has worked on preparing a list of projects it thinks could be eligible for money President-elect Barack Obama plans to spend on a national infrastructure stimulus package. Officials have said building a new Interstate 70 interchange that would serve the airport is at the top of the county’s list.
“It’s going to take a lot to get our projects on the list,” Johnson said. “Everyone has a list like ours.”
