Small towns,recycling and budgets

I heard over the weekend that Henderson, Tn. sold their old water tower for scrap metal to help their budget situation. Freed Hardeman University hired a company that recycles old bricks to come in and tear down one of their old buildings recently in Henderson. I'm surprised more of these small towns aren't doing some thing along those lines. There are numerous situations across the mid south and Tennessee valley where there are vacant buildings and water towers that are owned by the local government but they aren't being used and likely never will be used. Why not bring in a company that recycles old brick or metals and hire them to tear down and haul off the old towers and buildings? It sure beats just letting the structure sit there and literally rot to the ground like so many are today across the valley and mid south area.
