City looking at outsourcing ticketing

City looking at outsourcing ticketing: "As the city focuses more on trimming down to provide core services only, the mayor said Windsor will probably continue to shed employees as it has since 2005 during annual budget sessions.

Francis said Windsor has no other choice given the downturn in the local economy and the need to invest to transform that economy. “Otherwise, we may as well lock up the doors and go bankrupt,” he said.

Valentinis said he’s “very, very open” to looking at privatization of city services and that it’s nothing new."

Privatization of local government services is a completely different proposition than the folly of privatizing local government itself in the form of mandated common interest developments governed by private, nonprofit HOA corporations.

The former isn't nearly as objectionable as the latter provided it is done with transparency and accountability.
