No police, fire protection or garbage pick up. Mayor shuts down city.

What would you do if you had no police, fire protection or garbage pick up? The Mayor of Turrell, AR shut all city services down in response to a budget crisis. He is refusing to answer any questions about the cause. Reportedly, the budget crisis has to do with the IRS. Local residents are outraged. One resident stated he would rather have a dog for Mayor.

There are actually several places that do have dogs as mayors and have for decades. Places like Rabbit Hash, Kentucky. They do seem happier with their mayor.

Plenty of towns don't have police, fire, or garbage. They don't pay for them though. Living in California, I'm owed tax money which I over payed. The state is refusing to give me my money back. It just shows that government looks out for itself before its people.
