Re: “'Tough Choices' Ahead to Cover City's Pension Gap

Here's what we do....Embrace and pioneer the technology to use compressed natural gas in all vehicles....Start with an aggressive recruiting and training for a conversion mechanics program...convert at least 35% of all the vehicles registered in Shelby county to burn gasoline and compressed natural gas within 5 years...some taxbreaks for converting personal and fleet vehicles would help...Apply the same metric to all vehicles at local government use to include transit buses....

I bet the competition between fuels will result in the lowest energy costs in the nation for operating a motor vehicle,personal or government....MLGW should spearhead this effort,it's the unpolished jewel in the community,capable of providing so much more to everyone,including funds for the pensions....They just built one of the fueling stations recently,6 more in the next 5 years would be a good parallel effort....

As of this writing the cost of CNG(compressed natural gas)is less than half the price of a gallon of gas....$1.46 vs. $3.09...
