U.S. Government (aka, You, The Taxpayer) To Spend $100,000 For 30 Goats

From Fox Chicago:

[Amy Malick] says the city is looking at a pilot program of getting 30 goats to eat the grass and weeds in one, hard-to-mow area just east of Mannheim. [...]

The city says they've already received enthusiastic responses from a couple goat farmers interested in the bid, which is capped at $100,000. If all goes well, the goat grazing could be expanded to other areas of the airport. Just keep them away from Wrigley field.

I checked Xariif's dating site and found goats sell for as little as $10.

Leave it to government bureaucracy to pay 300 times more per goat. But I guess some of that expense goes toward 'goat specs'...
