Baldwin Commissioners to Decide on Stimulus Money

BAY MINETTE, Ala. (AP) - Baldwin County commissioners aren't sure whether they should accept about $1.7 million in federal stimulus money the county is eligible for.

The Press-Rgister reports that County attorney Scott Barnett told the commissioners that complying with federal labor, environmental and workplace safety requirements would require many hours of staff time and someone to lead the effort.

Commissioners asked staff members to give them a detailed compliance plan.

Then the board will vote on whether to accept the funds.

The county is eligible for nearly $760,000 in American Reinvestment and Recovery Act money for new and improved bus facilities and about $950,000 for road work.
