Workers install some of the solar panels going up on the new downtown Missoula parking garage Thursday. The installation will be the largest solar panel project in Montana, says Janelle Stauff, sales manager at Sunelco Solar, and the panels will generate 75 percent to 80 percent of the energy used at the garage.

    Does this 'project' qualify as an *official* boondoggle yet or is it still an unofficial, run-of-the-mill economic stimulus / political patronage / "OMG, we overshot the construction budget by millions!" / "Why did all the contractors got paid twice?!" type of 'infrastructure' project??

    In other news today......did I mention that the CITY has not leased even half of spots available. Oops! Do you know what happen when the overly optimistic projected net revenue does NOT cover the bond payments? Yep..........you are catching on now.
