LETTER: Share the burden

Dropping the 16 school buses and the drivers will cause many unforeseen burdens on families and daily workers with only one car, many other major inconveniences, and scores of different businesses that support and maintain the buses.

Of course, there's no way to tell how much money is being saved or how carefully the bus routes were assessed so your readers are still in the dark. Not surprising though, city planners rarely consider all the logistics involved in pre-planning.

One way to solve this school problem is to ask all city employees, including the mayor, his staff, and all the others, to take a 10 percent cut, or whatever percentage it takes. If they don't volunteer, make it an edict.
