Last week's Bloomington Sun Current included an excellent guest editorial column by Pam Pommer. Pommer, who has a lot of common sense, is a Bloomington resident and graduate of Lincoln Senior High School.
Pommer starts out, “I’m increasingly frustrated lately with government officials enthusiastically implementing new initiatives but apparently before doing adequate cost/benefit analysis and asking tough questions:
“Can they be implemented now or do other things have to be in place first?"
"What if the program isn’t successful? What if it is too successful?"
“Can we afford it?”
Pam Pommer goes on to write from a very practical point of view about several Bloomington issues - water rates, organics recycling, curbside cleanup costs, plastics recycling, and the city’s promotion of a world expo in Bloomington.
