Can GPS tracking help the municipal agencies?

If they cannot afford it, they will not buy it, if they do not buy it, a financial crisis is imminent. So what can be done? These agencies can become more creative in cutting costs so that the customers do not suffer.
GPS tracking is a great way for municipal agencies to become more strategic with their dwindling funds.
