I read with interest the massive print given to a small issue at Fresno Yosemite International Airport. How to recover $166,000 to balance the airport budget. Out of $33 million this is easy. Just lay off 20 percent of the staff like the city did to police and fire to balance their budgets during the recession and see how the service suffers. In the case of the airport, it won’t.
Government budgets are a fictitious method of empire builders who do not run for-profit businesses so the concept of making revenue exceed expenses is foreign. Run it like a business, and the future would be brighter and lighter.
There is no need to pass on fictitious built-up costs to ride-sharing companies that are trying to run their businesses the old-fashioned way: working for a profit.
