Letter: Chino Valley government can't manage other people's money


Well, I see the town has its hand out again for more cash. Sometimes too much is still not enough.

This tiny government has the same problem as the giant, bloated federal government, in that they can't manage other people's money.

Maybe it's time for a Chino sequester?

In the town government all the non-productive positions could be filled by senior retirees who would love to help run the town. No cost!

The Chino Valley Police Department, which has become bloated and non-productive, could be replaced by YCSO. Two or three deputies per shift would keep the peace just as well as what we have at a fraction of the cost.

We don't need unmarked trucks and cars driving aimlessly around town.

This would put the town in the black. This should be put up to a vote.

I agree to a large extent: Small town wants services, but not willing to pay for it. public transit is typical tax payer boondoggle. Even NYC has to subsidize their transportation-system with tax payer money. No way will any city , let alone a small town ever equitably fund public transportation. A Pool? Sure have one, but charge for it's use.
until the "I wants" are balanced by "what we need." taxes will be high. When people flee high tax/over regulated states and then vote the same way here, they just move the problem.
