In Ohio-a county had to reduce their Law enforcement by 20%-to acheive this the staff went from 112 TO 49. They have 1 squad car to cover 1900 sq kms. No patrol units, no one in the streets, they respond only to crimes in progress and do not respond to property crimes.
Once paved roads are being gravelled to save money. Most infrastructure dates back to post WW2. We saw on TV, the results of the collapse of an 8 lane bridge in Minneapolis in 2009.
Cities are turning off lights, cutting back on trash collection, laying off firefighters, closing Libraries and Parks and Recreation facilities.
One of the problems is people with no jobs are unable to pay their property Taxes, do not sign their kids up for Sports, and do not buy merchandise that would be taxed and thereby provide revenue for State and Local Gov'ts.
Scarey state of affairs.
