In Davidson's Future...Segways and Bike Shares?

In the ongoing drive to make Davidson something more/different than the college we all know and love, Town Staff presented a proposed budget last week which included one item which stood out for its tourist town kitsch - $26,000 for 3 "digital information kiosks".

It's a bit hard to see exactly why people would need impersonal information kiosks to ask directions in Davidson.  Isn't that one of the benefits of being in a small town - the neighborliness?

At the risk of these suggestions actually being taken seriously, what's next - Segway's and Bike Shares?

Seem about as good a use of taxpayer dollars for a town of 11,000.
