Pittsburgh City Council Holds Meeting On Stimulus Spending
Pittsburgh City Council today held a post agenda meeting to discuss stimulus funds and infrastructure. Council finance committee chair Bill Peduto called for the meeting and invited representatives from the finance department, public works, bureau of building inspection, the urban redevelopment authority, the housing authority, the water and sewer authority, and the governors office. Also at the meeting was State Representative Chelsa Wagner. A main point made by members of council was the need to have discussions with the Mayors office before decisions are made on how to spend the stimulus dollars. Council asked the different departments to highlight how they plan on using the stimulus dollars they receive.
