Dog run? School tech? Vote on how to spend one million dollars

So remember how back in October we told you that if you lived in Stephen Levin’s city council district that you’d just been rewarded with the chance to choose how to spend one million dollars? That’s all coming to a head now with specific projects out there to choose from. Of course, none of them cost a million dollars, and none of them are “giant death ray,” so we’re a little disappointed that Williamsburg may lose out on “Brooklyn’s first million dollar giant death ray” to Ditmas Park or something, but we guess that’s just how it goes.

A sample ballot of all the projects can be found here, and they range from things like a new dog run at the East River Park to updating the Gowanus Houses community center to providing MS 8 with more technology funding. More than the zero dollars they currently get, which, really? If you’re part of Levin’s district and see a project on there that you really really like, go out and make your voice heard. Not in a literal sense, there’s no need to yell. But from April 1-7, you can show up at the locations below to cast your vote for up to five of the projects. Which sadly has no write-in space for “million dollar giant death ray.” Sigh.
