Some public works officials say the plan by Akron mayor Don Plusquellic to sell the sewer system in order to give kids help with college costs is a bold idea but a bad one. Mayor Don Plusquellic would raise college money by selling Akron's sewer system to a private operator. Other communities have or are considering selling off public assets or privatizing public services but critics warn about the long-term consequences. We'll talk about Akron's tuition plan this morning at 9:00 on the Sound of Ideas.
