has noted that the agenda for the upcoming emergency Houston City Council meeting includes approving a contract for debris removal.
The cost: $98 million.
That's a lot of friggin' debris.
As Ubu Roi puts it: "[Agenda item]Number 3.a. is the jaw-dropper. Nearly $100 million to remove debris? Wow. Just wow."

Don't have too much of a heart attack, though -- the deal includes eventual reimbursement from FEMA. So it will all be federal money.
