What a Way to Run a Company

Or should we say Arlington County? There are still enough to growl about in the department budget reductions in the Manager’s FY 2011 proposed budget so let’s focus on those for the Department of Environmental Services. Again, the proposed reductions sound like things that could easily be accomplished within the authority of the County Manager. For example:

  • “Adjust STAR back-office” transit “efficiencies in operations and program management practices to improve the overall cost efficiency of the local transit program.” Management anticipates minimal customer impact.
  • Implement minor adjustments to route schedules and span of service on ART routes 61, 62, 51 and 53. Management again anticipates minimal customer impact.

Guess you don’t have to be efficient when it’s other peoples’ money you’re spending.
