Should Municipalities or Counties Be In Charge of a Business? - Sandra Ramsay


 

Should Municipalities or Counties Be In Charge of a Business? - Sandra Ramsay

When I was at the Oakdale Park Workshop on July 9, 2016, in a discussion about how Oakdale Park should be advertised and who should be in charge of events, etc, Ramsay said this. 

Oakdale Park is not another department. Oakdale Park is a business. And I heard someone say, and I wholeheartedly agree, municipalities or even counties should not be in charge of a business. And so, when we're looking at Oakdale Park, we've got to look at it as a business. Now, do we want to lease it out? And it alleviates a lot of things? But then you've got to develop a role model, you've got to consider employees, and so forth.

At the joint meeting this last Monday between Somervell County and the City of Glen Rose to discuss whether the city could take over the Expo Center for a time, she said this (Photo from previous meeting; audio)
 
I have to agree with Commissioner Hulsey, the statement he made about government entities. Let me say, I'm against government entities running private enterprise. (Audience: Amen) The county and the city both are in that predicament. Now, anything I say is not my opinion; it's the facts that I research with the city dollars. I respect and like Frank Abbott and Lori, I"m a supporter of them, but as an elected official, I'm not going to go through all the financial obligations, but based on all the research I have done for the city and you know how I research, we have some extreme financial obligations and financial restraints going on in the city and if you want me to list 'em, I'll be glad to.
Glad to hear this said. It's always seemed to me, personally, that the benefit of tax-payer funded government is for services such as roads, police, fire/ems, and library. John Curtis had, a couple of years ago (October 2013) , made a list that he put on his wall with essential and non-essential services. Does government need to be in the business of running private enterprise? I'm with Sandra Ramsay on this.
