Add Jim Bacon to the list of those who see a tremendous opportunity for savings if road maintenance is outsourced/competitively bid. Bacon has published a essay in his Bacon's Rebellion
e-zine on the potential to save $200 million
annually in road maintenance costs by using private contractors.
Bacon's well-researched piece follows posts by Geoff Segal
and Norm Leahy
on this blog that identified road maintenance as a significant savings opportunity.
Looks like HB667
is a "keeper."
