Huron is the little town that could.

Could look at staffing with regard to budget concerns.

Could make do without a human resource director and an assistant city manager for a time to further stretch the city budget.

Could successfully negotiate with Erie County to contract out the human resource functions at savings to taxpayers.

Could be area leaders in regionalization, a concept whose time has come.

Forward thinking communities across the country are realizing duplication of services is a luxury they can no longer afford. To provide essential services and quality of life extras to communities with reduced revenues takes a fresh approach to city spending. "The way we've always done it" is just not good enough anymore.

Huron City Manager Andy White continues to look for other areas in which to streamline services. As a city manager, White is looking good.
