PALM BAY: New Campground? What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

Palm Bay want to design, build and manage a campground. What could go possibly wrong?

Lots.

John Stossel explains:

Governments should not compete against private businesses as not only is there a conflict of interest in rules and regulations, but it is always the taxpayer that foots the bill when the government can’t manage things properly.

    Palm Bay has no plans for relocating the amenities they are kicking out of the park. This is another “good ol boys” project that won’t pay off.

      Paul,

      Thanks for the comment.

      Frankly, you could have stopped at “Palm Bay has no plans” and that would be accurate as well.

      We would bet that there is no one within City Hall that has a clue as to what it takes to run a campground.

      We would hazard to guess that there is not a person in City Hall and especially within human resources that knows what being a good campground manager entails.

      That means that there will be no standards or comprehension of the job when the City either hires people to work at the campground, or seeks to hire a firm to run the campground.

      We said it in the post: governments should not compete with the private sector as Palm Bay is doing here.

      Thanks again.

      A. Afterwit.
