Google paid the city a lump sum of $30 million for a 52-year lease. What do you think the city should do with the money?

Asked in Downtown Mountain View. Pictures and interviews by Nick Veronin and Nadezhda Banchik

"Maybe Mountain View should re-skin the Hanger One at Moffett Field."

Steve Woodson, Morgan Hill:

"Caltrain, buses and other public transportation need improvement. I'm commuting every day from San Francisco to Mountain View. Also, free Wi Fi for everybody in Mountain View would be great."

Deepti Chheda, San Francisco

"I think we need extra money for Caltrain."

Andrew Gaul, San Francisco

"Off hand, I can't really say what the city should do with the money. Maybe the city should put (it aside) for a while and decide later, instead of making a quick decision that might be not a right one."

Brigitte Fox, Mountain View

"Obviously, they should give the money back to the teachers so that they could teach the kids of Mountain View and Los Altos."

Toby The, Los Altos
