Shovel Ready Projects
Boost the Economy
For several years we here in the United States of America have heard a lot about Shovel Ready Projects and the additional Federal Spending required to boost the economy of our great country.
Recently the sub-division where I reside completed three Shovel Ready Projects and expended the necessary funds to do so. These projects were completed in a timely manner using local labor and did not require any government funds. The reserve fund of our Sub-Division was used to provide these worthwhile employment opportunities for workers of all ethnic backgrounds to work.
This street repair project involved the removal of several yards of damaged concrete and the pouring of several yards of new concrete and also stamping the new concrete to match the exiswting roadway. This picture was taken today, June 24, 2012. This project was actually completed in September of 2011.
The second project was completed in the Spring of 2012 and involved the removal of unsightly vines and replacing this area with new sod.
This wall repair project, except for a few minor touch up areas was completed on Friday, June 22, 2012. It involved the removal of all the bricks on this facade and the relaying of the usable bricks plus new bricks to complete the project. It involved a local Bricklayer and his two employees.
I certainly am proud to be part of an organization that has provided gainful employment opportunity for four firms who worked on these three projects. Additionally, each of these firms obtained the resources they needed from local Middle Georgia firms.
Three shovel ready projects completed within the span of ten months.
