Volunteers in the municipal sector — 1 Comment

  1. Dear Sir, because most municipalities budget’s have run thin, I was wondering how we could use volunteers to help create additional funds by using a volunteer force to enable the city to promote events that will draw citizens and tax dollars to are community. What I always run into is the liability issue and the discussions go down hill from their. Yes, we have union workers but often time if we want to promote Veterans day, 4th of july, etc. They say liability issues and can’t afford to pay union labor. Do you have any ideas on how to resolve the insurance issues that will not break the bank.We can get individuals to pay for flags and banners but city because of funding will not install these on our light poles.
