Report on the cost-effective programs

Regarding “Excessive spending a growing challenge locally and statewide” (Our View, Aug. 15), I am also interested in your reporting on government programs or parts of programs that are working, and are cost-effective, especially local. Could you highlight a top 10 every six months, or something like that? The “excessive spending stories” are about what’s not working. My request is about what’s working. I realize in the course of your reporting you do cover innovation in government such as mPOWER. In contrast to the highly paid retirees, there are small improvements and innovations everywhere in local government. Maybe an easy way to access these stories is through those awards that county governments give to employees annually. Thank you. Betty Jensen, Auburn
