Sculley wants horses

President-elect Obama wants a stimulus package, and local governments are sending the federal government wish lists of projects they would love to see get funded by the package. San Antonio is no different. In fact, City Manager Sheryl Sculley submitted a wish list amounting to over $1 billion in projects.
With President-elect Barack Obama and Congress looking to quickly pump billions of dollars into job-generating projects across the country, San Antonio officials have drawn up a preliminary wish list packed with projects worth $1.1 billion.
“I don't think it's any surprise,” City Manager Sheryl Sculley said. “We have huge needs in the community, and there are many things we could move forward with.”

Worthy projects, I'm sure, but did you know that the City wants a horse patrol? Really, it's on the wish list. We don't have a mounted police force now, so we would have to build one from scratch. And I didn't know that we even needed a horse patrol.

What do you think? Does San Antonio need police officers on horses?
