As a civil servant, I have seen parts of the government that few people get to see unless they dedicate their lives to being in it whether it is civilians working with the government or a man or woman that decides to join the military service. Being part of the government I understand that there are some community issues that we all face, and with that in mind, I came up with a list of the biggest needs and how the government can help. Here is the list of issues every community faces.
The Big Community Issues We All Face
Everyone lives in a community whether it is the auto body shop that sells car rims or the hair dresser on the corner that has been in business for over 20 years. We are all part of a community, and we all need to get along so we can make it in this tough world. Here are some of the issues we all face as members of a community.
1. Littering – The government needs to make littering a tougher offense, and to also help make sure communities stay clean, they can help to implement a recycling program so that trash can actually serve a purpose. With a recycling program, big things like worn out Honda car wheels, sheet metal, and other manufacturing waste items can be turned into something else, which is going to make every community a lot nicer and cleaner place to live.
2. Overcrowding – Everyone deserves a place to call home, but in some cities, there are just simply too many people and something needs to be done. The Federal government can help those cities with too many residents by offering to build low cost housing in the area. Both the state and government can work together to help ease the overpopulation problem, and with their own homes, people will be able to live together in peace and harmony.
3. Green renewable energy – Right now, green is in, and the government even now, is looking into ways to make green a way of life for everyone. The government is doing its own research into green energy, and there are some ways that people can do their part by doing things like having solar panels installed on their homes, and buying hybrid cars, like the 2014 Honda Civic.
However, the problem with things like solar panels and hybrid cars is that fact that they are not very cheap, and actually do cost a lot of money. The government is offering tax rebates for those that do spend the money, and solar power can actually help people earn money by selling the excess of power to the electric company, but the immediate out-of-pocket costs are pretty high. Making green energy more affordable is the best thing that the government can do for its people, and soon everyone will be going green for the betterment of the whole planet.
4. Higher education – Teenagers want to do something with their lives, but these days, they need a higher education in order to do it. One way that the government can help make sure that kids go beyond high school is to offer more scholarships and financial aid to those that truly want make a difference in the world. The cost of college is only getting higher, and the government can help all those kids that dream of higher education, but their families cannot necessarily afford it.
Everyone Wants To Improve Their Living Circumstances
The Federal government has a responsibility to help the people that have put them in office. As a civil servant, I get to witness first-hand the government in action. However, when it comes to communities, we all live in one and look to the government to make sure that our lives are better. By doing certain things, like helping people get an education, better housing, and switching to green renewable energy, the government will have the support of the people, which is why politicians are elected to office in the first place.
