The Town of Fishers has entered into an agreement with the Hamilton Southeastern School system to do snow removal and grass cutting.
The Town of Fishers is going to do their own maintenance work on its vehicles instead of taking it to a dealer of service center.
On the surface these look like good ideas, but just like the oil is not only the top of the water, we should look below the surface.
In the Wall Street Journal, June 10, 2010 on page 6A is an article that points out that government workers cost more than private industry and not by a little. It is about $12 more an hour.
So here we have a Republican run government taking jobs from the private sector and increasing government size. Instead of reducing government.
Maybe it’s a way of transferring funds from HSE to Fishers behind everyone’s back.
I have to wonder since the HSE’s Chief Financial Office is also a paid consultant to the Town of Fishers and failed to list this on his conflict of Interest form.
