Local governments always complain about states passing responsibilities (and costs) down to them. But this takes the cake.
NJ Guv Jon Corzine is proposing to have cities and counties scrape dead deer off their own roads. Apparently, about two-thirds of the 21,000 deer that get whacked by cars each year in NJ are on local roads. Shifting clean-up duty from the state DOT to the local public works departments will apparently save the state $734,000.
Memo to local DPWs: Roadkill need not be a burden. In fact, it can be a tasty meal!
