5:15 pm
unless it cost the city 155 million dollars if it cost the city 155 million dollars i don't think that would be very wise" last week, transportation secretary aubrey lane sent this letter to delegate ron villanueva which says if the beach took the issue to polls they money could be lost. 17=3:09:12 "if they are not ready to go forward which is their prerogative i want to make that clear then the consequences then we have that money to work else where but when they are ready if they decide to go forward we will be just as supportive as we projects only a faction of money to go around. if the light rail money rolls somewhere else, virginia beach can reapply for funding but there is no guarantee. 16=2:40:37 "a lot of us thought as long as the referendum did not fear with the time line of the construction of light rail it would be permitted but that appears not to be the case" 17=3:10:44 "what you're asking us to do is hold for a project that might occur that's not going to occur that might occur"

the intention of the law i'm told they are leaning towards letting residents have the final say. 54=4:25:38 'it is incumbent upon the virginia beach council to do what is right and practical and don't think we should be backed into making a decision prematurely" layne told me he wants virginia beach to do what best for the city. meaning if city leaders have to take their time and make sure the residents want light rail then that should happen and that if virginia beach decides to move forward than the state will be just as supportive as before. jason marks 10 on your side. we weren't the only ones digging out after old man winter visited parts of virginia and north carolina. :17- 22 nats snow plow people traveling in the forsyth county/winston-salem area haven't really been able to get around because of the icy conditions. as you can see, cars of all types got stuck on
