Curious that a private business receives 10k from the govt for something like this.

I hope there is an outside person that is not involved in the Austin dam , Austin museum , borough council to oversee the money otherwise it will just go into the usual pockets and nothing will get done! They have spent untold thousands in the past without bidding the work and using a (it's none of your business attitude) when asked were it was spent! If you want to get back the support of the people quit doing the behind closed door under the table deals!
