Letter: Competition could improve local government



I totally agree with Gail Deitz’s comments in the last Current in Carmel regarding our right to choose our own trash service. Need we remind the city council and the mayor that we do not live in a country where government dictates how we spend our money. We decide, and we pay for the services we select. Trash pick-up is not a public utility. It is a privately held and run consumer service. The city has no authority to dictate its customer base.

Further government intrusion is not what will “Make America Great Again.” It will do just the opposite.

It is time for the Carmel leaders to stop thinking they can make these kinds of decisions for the taxpaying public. It is not their money.

Competition made our economic system great. Maybe some competition would improve local government.
