Actually we would not need prisoners to clean the beaches if the parks department with all their summer help did their job. You don't need to send five guys to do the work of one man. This another reason the city is in the mess its in. But look at the bright side. Actually there is no bright side in this city.

Prisoners do NOT work for free. They should, but they don't. The state charges. So, your taxes pay to arrest, Try and incarcerate criminals, and then pay to have them work off their crimes. Nice racket. It has NOTHING to do with Union rules.

Point Gratiot has been neglected for years. Brockton prisioners would have that beach cleaned up in no time but of course that would violate union rules. Wool pert Associates was a consulting firm hired by the city and they suggested making Point Drive North (past the lighthouse) as the entrance to the point. Did we do it? Of course not. Stupidity prevails in city hall.
