Monday, July 21, 2008 | If the city-controlled non-profit redevelopment organizations are coming under such scrutiny lately, then what is the citywide business process re-engineering/privatization push that Mayor Sanders and Carl DeMaio are advocating going to be like? The city will have so many for-profit contractors to look after that ensuring that the public good is served will be an industry unto itself. Furthermore, this added layer of quality control bureaucracy will allow corruption to leak in, and the cost of buying off a city inspector will be passed on to the city as an added expense incurred by the contractor. I would recommend against privatizing city functions until the City can control the non-profits it runs.
