    18 million to renovate the Quincy station!? Yes projects like these are important and necessary but what’s with the over inflated costs? You’d think a state with finance problems would get more for their money but no. They’re getting screwed over by the people they’re protecting. These overpriced projects should be done for a much lower dollar value.
