This is about productivity. As a business owner, productivity is a daily concern rather than an annual one. We control some but not all expenses (hydro, rates, MSP).
As a mom, I know we are all household managers. Our city is a 30 million dollar household with room for improved productivity. Recycling has saved us on dumping fees. We should consider applying a portion of the savings on community projects.
I’m not about cutting. I’m about making the best use of the resources we have to build the city we want. We all have a role to play therein.
