"Domestic non-profit" can mean anything you want it to mean. Whenever a NFP wants bigger Read Moreand bigger slices of the pie, they can maneuver TAX dollars--this time BRENTWOOD tax $ into administrative pockets and perks, still calling themselves NFP. That is de facto profit, just not to share holders. City Hall has a real credibility problem---don't make 911 emergency situations part of City Hall's credibility problem. Somebody expects to pocket the income from ECDC's efforts to wrangle Brentwood tax money too. So there is a profit motive. Any First Responder delays, such as we have been reading and hearing about carries more weight than having an Administrative agenda forced down our throats. And these recent magnet call center foul ups are only the ones we know about. You know there is ALWAYS more "dirt" where that came from--but "dirt" doesn't sell their product. So why should they tell Brentwood. Keep the dispatchers in-house. Thank you for your response. I hope I helped clear up the semantics of NFP and how profit is a reality shuffled around.

WHAT HAPPENED TO MY POST? Any time a NFP wants a bigger slice of the pie--there IS a profitRead Moremotive. It just goes into administrators pockets. ECDC is not a charity and we all know how very wealthy the administrators can become while remaining NFP. It's kind of like Bank administrators spearheading projects that will be financed by that same administrators place of employment. It is a sematic distinction without a difference. manipulation. Someone is getting the money---which means there is a manipulated profit motive.
