Is there a street or public safety project you think deserves to be on the ballot? Let staff, council, and your fellow SpeakUpComo users know what it is and why it belongs. Remember these funds are used for capital projects (road improvements, vehicles, facilities, etc.), not personnel. Take a look at the latest CIP List, look out your window, think about projects the next time you are out and about in Columbia, and submit them here.

In the past, the federal government paid for 80% of new buses, but with higher deficits these programs have become unreliable. That doesn't stop our bus fleet from aging. Given the age of our buses, we are short on buses, sometimes unable to cover routes because too many buses are out of service for repair & maintenance. Replacing aging diesel buses with electric buses will cost a little more than buying new diesel buses-- but will save substantially in the long run.
