How much should a bus shelter cost? In Grants Pass, Ore., the answer may surprise you. Harry Esteve of The Oregonian reports that city officials recently signed off "on a project to build five bus shelters at an estimated cost of $106,000 apiece," or the cost of building a three-bedroom house.
The project has spurred embarrassment among council members and outrage among some city residents who are "tired of seeing federal tax money spent frivolously."
Looks like you haven't made a choice yet.
