Interesting jobs for local government

Ever want to work for a local government?  Many people think they probably aren’t qualified or don’t want to do the work that is normal for government – think again!  I was following up on some research and ran across these job postings on a North Carolina’s local government’s website.  I won’t disclose the name of the city, but I can definitely say that some of these positions are not a necessary function of government.  A ceramic arts instructor? A tennis instructor?

What do you think is a necessary government function?
