Meh, that's peanuts compared to what went down in my town about 15yrs ago. My city is unfortunately under the jurisdiction of the city of Los Angeles,
and nobody can spend money better than them!
Here's what happened: we got a shiny new animal shelter. Yep, a state of the art facility for the cool sum of 35 MILLION DOLLARS. Thirty-five.
Million. It's a modest sized building, can hold maybe 80-100 stray animals.
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!!
The Grand Opening was set for early September, and when that day arrived it was swelteringly hot. So hot the animals were in distress with no way to
cool the place down and they had to cut the ceremony short.
Well, that incident prompted city problem-solvers to contract a cool mist cooling system for all of the kennels. For an additional $180,000. I'm not
kidding, somebody made huge money off that project, and it's just one that I know about.
