What's in your treasury?
The city of Port St. Lucie, Florida is charging the cost of a new freeway interchange on its Visa card.
There's a $6 million limit on the card, which must be paid off monthly. The estimated $24 million price of the road work, once completed, will earn the city $125,000 in reward credits from Bank of America.
Vendors apparently don't mind: they get paid a lot faster than they would otherwise.
