    It ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Government should not compete with private businesses.

      Frank —

      I disagree; think that “municipalizing” certain services commonly delivered by local government is completely fine. Many Towns, Villages and Cities provide municipal garbage collection, and if by doing so we can save New Paltz residents several hundred dollars a year, I think it a worthwhile project.
