The committee is charged with seeking out waste in 4 specific areas; budgeting, health care, technology and natural resources. The committee’s first meeting is to be held August 22-23. Anyone with any ideas for something that is laden with waste and inefficiencies send Chairman Jon Sonju an e-mail at email@example.com
