Now this is a heck of a deal, Fort Worth city officials are considering the creation of a modern “streetcar” system. According to Texas Government Insider, the plan could cost between $16 million and $40 million… per mile!

The city spent $1 million taxpayer dollars to study a similar idea in 2002 and came up with nothing to show for it but $1 million in misspent money. Now Fort Worth officials are looking to appoint a 15-member committee to decide whether or not taxpayers should be bilked out of even more money.
