A decision on the Smart City grant money – potentially $50 million to fund technological solutions to mobility issues – is due within a few weeks, and whether Austin wins, or loses to one of the six other finalists, City Council will be looking at the programs that make up that application, to either supplement or replace that money...."

Rebooted City Council Gets a New Chance to Fix Austin
