Re: “Serco gets $35 million deal to handle city fleet

Clever folks at Serco, they get to have $35M in tax-payer revenue, instead of it being reinvested in the local community. Being able to call a sitting Councilman one of their own is not bad either.
One of the problems facing the Colorado Springs economy is that its tax base consists largely of wage earners, pensioners, and small to medium sized businesses. Large corporations, on the other hand, take their earnings elsewhere for tax purposes, leaving only what may or may not go to property taxes to remain in the regional coffers.
The decision of the city council will result in job loss and a reduction in contracts with local firms, and place a further drain on the city’s resources.
Deals like this one end up costing the community far more than what’s on the price tag.
