Baltimore schools have returned millions in state funds for heating repairs

January 5, 2018

Baltimore schools have had to return millions in state funding for building repairs after projects to fix failing heating systems and roofs grew too expensive or took too long.

Since 2009, city schools have lost out on roughly $66 million in state funding for much-needed repairs after approved projects ran afoul of state regulations meant to prevent waste, state records show. The money could have funded dozens of new heating systems at schools where the heat is now failing.

David Lever, former director of the state’s Public School Construction Program, said his agency raised concerns in late 2015 about the large amount of rescinded funds coming back to the state from Baltimore.

    This is what happens when normal contract procedures take on additional requirements for political reasons. Forcing racial identify into contract requirements means a lot of no bid or minimal bid contracts going to relatives and friends (donors) of bureaucrats and politicians. Baltimore is the poster city for the failed political leadership of one party rule for generations. (especially when your Mayor says you have to give rioters and looters room to express themselves while your city burns)

    Another “success” story about a Democrat Party run city.
