When it comes to small communities and the business of the people, effective service delivery works well when ideas mix. I agree with Fleck, because the service itself is non-partisan. It seems to be the details that favor party thinking. The mix—publicly controlled services that function like privatized businesses-- seem to be functional and beneficial. Businesslike public services also serve well as revenue gainers when they are shared with neighboring communities.
