Maybe Jamestown can find ways of cutting the cost. Starting with the salaries of those in a public job, being paid by tax cash. If a person is in the job for the money, then there needs to be somebody else in the position. Maybe someone that cares for the people of the community! Not how much he/she can make from the community.
