Mayors and Councils don’t cost any real money, yet you want to get rid of these hard-working public servants. Where are the real savings?

A:

The real savings come from the elimination of redundant positions that are required for each town.  This includes township administrators, clerks, tax assessors, CFOs, inspectors, attorneys, DPW management, etc.  For example, one administrator can just as easily service a community of 4,000 or 40,000 but the cost is covered by 10 times the number of households.  Mayors and councils/committees would come from a larger pool of qualified people.  Dual office holding would be impossible to justify.  Mayors for all communities would be elected rather than appointed by their committee providing better representation and accountability to the public.  The new model also gives Mayors and councils/committees more leverage with the state and contract negotiations.
