Sweeping the city streets : public or private?
Note:In Tennessee Public Works -- Vol. 10 - no. 6 (Jan/Feb 1993).
Summary:The original intent of this article, as assigned, was to discuss the cost of comparisons between street sweeping done by public works departments versus privatization by contract. But, cost cannot accurately be broken out for comparison. There has really been no logical reason for the lack of consideration of privatization.
