    The Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund (MNRTF) board
    recommended $300,000 in development funds to be allocated
    to Ottawa County Parks & Recreation for development and
    construction of a 1-mile segment of the Idema Explorers Trail
    in Jenison at their annual meeting in December.

    I should cross-post this dangling phrase to alt.english.usage.
    Alas, it's far from the most-confusing sentence ever perpetrated
    by a professional writer -- the very next sentence includes
    "comprised of".

    At least they aren't passing it off as transportation or "safety":

    "Giving everyone access to the scenic spaces and connected trails
    along the Grand River Greenway will improve the quality of life
    for current and future West Michigan residents."

    Recreation Opportunities
    In addition to opening up recreation opportunities on land,
    it also creates more access for anglers.

    But I snarkily wonder what they would say to a request to spend one
    percent of that sum to hire a traffic-handling teacher for six

    (Those guys are dedicated, and work cheap.)
