Metro to get $1.8M for snow removal

Metro will receive more than $2.7 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as partial reimbursement for the costs of snow removal during the storms last February and December, Metro said in a press release.

Metro spent $12.7 million on the snow removal work, which included labor overtime fees, fuel for equipment, and salt and de-icing supplies, it said.

FEMA has already given Metro $1 million for the December snowstorm, and it will receive the remainder of the money for reimbursement of the February storms.

Maybe they can use some of that money to hire someone to fix the closed escalator at Foggy Bottom that has a sign saying it will be completed on August 30,2010. On rare occassions you will see one or two people dressed in blue tooling around pretending to fix something. I just want a stairs I don't care if it moves or not. I can hoof it.

If they fix the escalators, nobody will be paid to pretend to fix them. Why would you want to create unemployment? Do you hate black people?
