Outsourcing trash service does not typically cost the city directly. The trash company actually provides a stipend back to the city each month for including the trash fees on the water bill. I have checked in other communities close to our size and those customers are paying $10-$11 per month for twice a week trash pick up and once a week recycling with no large bins just a small recycling tote. That is half the current trash rate of River Oaks.

The water treatment system will continue to be a money pit and maintenance nightmare. When you consider all of the maintenance, capital needs, and employee costs to run it you could pay for a lot of water for a lot of years from FW.

What about partnering with Westworth or Sansom Park or both to regionalize the police dispatch and jail services. This is currently being done in two different regions of NE Tarrant County with great success and cost savings for all involved communities. Colleyville and Keller share Animal Control and Court services currently.

Electronic ticket writers would decrease the data entry workload in the court clerks office enough to reduce a staff person or at least one to half time.

Just a few ideas.
