What would they do with this money you ask? Funding to build a museum, a vineyard and a "solar-enhanced" scenic railway for the vineyard, an a solar recharge station for electric golf carts were among their 30-some requests made in a new report.
"Do you know how hard it is to fund some of these projects when your tax base is so low?" U.S Conference of Mayors Representative E.D. Phillips told U.S. News and World Report.

According to President-elect Obama these kinds of requests aren't "earmarks" though. (Here's my post on that from a few days ago.) Hah.
