Do we get what money’s worth?

After reading about how much the taxpayers are paying for the so-called police protection (Journal, July 10), I and others would like to know what they actually do. Is that too much to ask for? I’m not so concerned about the cops in their cars — I know what they do. I just don’t know what their bosses do, besides count their money. As a taxpayer I want a time study done on all our overpaid state and county workers. I know the city of Auburn can’t afford these outrageous wages. Just write down what you do in one-hour increments. Do this for one week or one month. This will tell the taxpayers if we are getting our money’s worth. This is a requirement in high-paying jobs in large companies. If you think you are too important to do this, I have nothing else to say, except we can’t afford you. KNIGHT WAGNER, Colfax
