Hopes budget crisis brings us together-LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Posted: Wednesday, Mar 20th, 2013

Thank you to Larry Clark for his letter (Chronicle, March 13). The information he provided is what we need to know to make informed decisions about our budget.

Firefighters, police officers and all city employees are our neighbors and friends who provide much-needed services to us.I hope our citys budget crisis brings our community together as we all realize well need to make sacrifices to solve our financial woes.

I got my suggestion about shutting off city lights from a New York Times article about cost-saving measures Colorado Springs took. It stated the city saved around $1 million by shutting off a percentage of its lights, and cited a 1997 National Institute of Justice study that failed to find a correlation between more lights and reduced crime. Im sure our city council is looking into other cost-saving measures other cities have implemented.

Lets hope the newly elected city council members are open to all possibilities to reducing city costs.We all want to make Page a better place. People may come to Page for a job but they stay because its a great place to raise a family and retire. I, like so many others, hope we can keep it that way.
