COLUMN: Conway ends example of wasteful spending

-A A +A

Boom or bust, privatizing inspections way to go

By Ben Carlson

Column as I see ’em …

Props go to new Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway for the move he made in axing the electrical inspector’s position in favor of contracting the job out to a private contractor.

The move will save taxpayers at least $15,000 annually that was being wasted on salary and benefits during this protracted economic down turn. The inspection fees collected during the past several years didn’t come close to paying for the position, yet for some unexplained reason taxpayers were forced to continue shelling out money.
