$270,000 divided by 64 people comes to $4,218.75 per person. How long will the work last? What will the young people be paid? How many supervisors will be part of the project? How will the effectiveness of the project be measured? What long-term value will occur? Could those same 64 people be better used in helping in the cities to assist the chronically unemployed become trained?

When funds are scarce and needs are great, is the best use of those funds to beautify the deseret or would those funds be better utilized where each dollar would generate other dollars?
