Privatization

 With budget squeezes, government agencies have been turning work over to the private sector and with remarkable results:

  1. Housing    Tenant management of public housing in one location raised rent collections 105%, cut vacancy rates 13%, cut administrative costs 60%, crime 75% and teenage pregnancy and welfare dependency 50%.  In other cities the same arrangement cut vacancy18%, robbery 77%, and crime 66%.
  2. Parks    Some have become self-sufficient.
  3. Transit    300 transit systems contract their services saving 10% – 50%.
  4. Fire    One fifth of Arizona’s cities contract with a private firm for about a third the national cost.  This has brought better service and lower insurance rates.
