Winners & Losers 11.18

The Bright Idea department of the Winners & Losers division of the IN media and entertainment empire can’t wait for the “2011 Ballsy Plan” to share its latest brainstorms. Here are the six best ideas:

1. LOST FUNDS A Local Option Sales Tax plan was presented when the tax was passed in 2006. Proposed changes to that plan should be clearly publicized on the home pages of city and county websites before the changes can be approved.

2. CONSOLIDATION A Functional Consolidation Task Force should be appointed by the Board of County Commissioners, constitutional officers, the newly-elected Pensacola mayor, School District and ECUA to make recommendations for the 2011-2012 budgets.

3. SURPLUS SCHOOL PROPERTY Any school district buildings that are deemed surplus should be made available for $1 a year to other local governments or community groups before they are sold to the private sector. The good of the community should be given priority.
