In these days of increased expenses, decreased revenue and a more-uncertain-than-ever future, our local officials need to find new ways to save money. Many times, the most obvious choice is to reduce expenses: discontinue a program, reduce the number of employees, or defer maintenance or building improvements.

We’ve seen our own local government leaders make those difficult decisions. No one wants to approve those cuts, and most of the people who use those services or support those government entities don’t like to see them either.
