"Flow Control" Doesn't Necessarily Equal Economic Development

It's called 'flow control'. But it's a euphemism for sending virtually all of the trash and waste to southern Dallas in a misguided effort to balance the city's budget and bring 'economic development' to south of our city.

Now 'green' can be good. It can be a tool in economic development in jobs, tax revenue and tax payer/consumer savings.

Paul Quinn and residents of the most immediately affected community have been fighting the decision. Ultimately we have to ask the question, 'Is this real economic development' or a short-sighted boon doggle?
