$3.4 Million In Stimulus Money Coming To Amarillo

The City of Amarillo is set to receive $3.5 Million dollars in federal stimulus money to help with maintenance for city buses.

The U.S. Department Of Transportation announced Wednesday that $32 million dollars is coming to the state of Texas for similar projects. Locally, a majority of the funds will go towards preventative maintenance of current vehicles.

The money still needs to be approved by the state of Texas before the city accepts it. We could see the money as soon as mid-June.
