Running Government Like A Business

So I am reading my local paper, while holding my nose, and came across a couple of
interesting things.

One local town ,who in part due to Andrew Cuomo’s(D) property tax caps are actually
becoming creative at spending less. Imagine that,being forced to live like the rest of us
in  the real world.

Instead of crying foul they have come up with some interesting ways to cut back.
One component is the highway dept with 140 workers who’s job is to pickup brush and leaves,will now operate out of the solid waste dept where there is money to pay for it. This transfer allows the town to lower the hwy tax 101.92 per household.

To cut more than 600,000 in recycling costs they  plan to partner with another township for single-stream recycling.

The budget also includes no salary increases for elected officials.
 Did I mention the town supervisor is a Republican?

And in other news Pennsylvania teachers and unions are all up in arms because the Dept of Education is asking them to pay 140.00 per month towards their health insurance, claiming it’s a “war” on teachers. Sound familiar?

Wow don’t we all wish that was all we had to pay?

  3. $600,000 in recycling costs? We were all told that recycling is a money MAKER, not a money TAKER. Your township would be money ahead dumping that recycling project.

    Recycling is BS, as Penn and Teller would put it.

    1. I'm all for saving the earth, since it's the only planet we have at the moment. But I'm not for idiocy in the process, and the older I get, the less patiently I suffer fools.

      I have a friend who farms, primarily corn and soybeans. He is a rabid recycler and environmentalist when he is not in his fields dumping all manner of pesticides, fertilizers etc. by the ton to increase yields.

      I can't seem to convey to him that he is arguably the biggest hypocrite in town: he will drive a mile out of his way in his 1-ton pick up truck that gets 5 miles a gallon to drop off an aluminum can to recycle.

      I don't get these liberal hypocrites. I never will.

  17. Usually, having people specialize in specific tasks within the chain of a business process, provides economy of scale and learning advantages. However arguments can be made for just the opposite approach having one person take the process from beginning to end. Let's see where the specialized approach can harm and where the opposite approach could operate advantageously. ottawa hr consultant

  18. Recent studies have shown that added to the many well known benefits of omega-3 fatty acids is the discovery that we can also get better vision for ourselves by using omega-3 fish oil for eye health. Failing eyesight is often associated with aging and it is often the case that we then resign ourselves to getting spectacles or glasses. However these studies have indicated that a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids can protect our eyesight as we get older and improve vision. calgary optical stores
