All options on the table

Sometimes, the map just doesn’t give good directions. Maybe there’s an accident on the highway, clogging up traffic or maybe some roads have been blocked off for construction work. That’s when shortcuts and alternative routes come into play, leading you down roads you’ve never been on. You get confused, turned around and before long, you’re completely lost. Local cities and counties found themselves in the same situation as a result of the 2008 recession, trying whatever necessary to stay afloat.
