"Let business do what it does best." - Mike O'Brien

In this article regarding snow removal, the final paragraph stood out, which proves that you always have to read every article through until the last word.
"Meanwhile, the city is facing a potential $600,000 liability because its budget-savings plan to purchase the streetlight system from National Grid has been delayed because of complex negotiations. This year’s municipal budget had assumed a savings of $1.2 million generated by the acquisition of the streetlight network."
 There's been a big push by Mike O'Brien to privatize the City's parking assets.  The Research Bureau wants to privatize pretty much everything.  Why would the City want to buy our streetlight system if private business is the most efficient way to deliver City services?
