The people of Sandy Springs grew tired of being taxed up the yin yang while having no say on how local tax dollars were spent. They split from their previous county, and used private industry to doing everything that we expect municipal governments to do: pick up trash, pave streets, maintain parks, etc...What did they find? Private industry has maintained the same services at half the cost!
Since they reincorporated as their own city, Sandy Springs has been able to run with no increase in taxes, and the city is flush with cash. Within the past five years, four other smaller cities in Georgia are following the lead of Sandy Springs. Let's put the public unions on notice.
