STUDENT INTERNS WILL HELP REDUCE BACKLOG OF COURT TICKETS...SAVE MONEY WITH ENERGY SAVINGS
Release Date: June 01, 2011

STUDENT INTERNS PAID FOR FROM A FEDERAL EDUCATION GRANT WILL PROCESS BACKLOG OF TICKETS IN TOWN COURT—PROBABLY GENERATING SIX FIGURES OF ADDITIONAL REVENUE FOR TOWN===IDEA PROPOSED BY CITIZENS BUDGET OVERSIGHT COMMISSION------THANK YOU BERKELEY COLLEGE

 

The Citizens Budget Oversight Commission consists of about 32 residents from around the town who are examining ways to improve efficiency in the the way our government operates. The challenge: to maintain services and to keep taxes to a minimum. This can be achieved through new ideas which will increase productivity and bring down the cost of government.

The commission has already come up with a fantastic new idea that could generate significant revenue for the town. A partnership has been formed by a local college (Berkeley), the commission, the town and courts. Berkeley College will provide the Town Court with two college interns who are paid for from a federal education grant. The grant is designed to train students for jobs after graduation. Each of the students  will work 20 hours a week in processing the backlog of tickets in the town court. We expect to generate six figures in new revenue as a result of this partnership –the revenue will be used to reduce any tax hike.

This is just one of many new ideas being proposed by the Citizens Bduget Oversight Commission, chaired by Alan Hochberg.
