HOGAN & MAMET: STATE OF OUR CITIES AND TOWNS

Municipal revenues are up, but unfortunately maintenance schedules still lag behind

GUEST COLUMNISTS

It’s taken four years for the municipal revenue picture to turn around but 2012 ended with encouraging results — 47 percent of respondents to an annual Colorado Municipal League survey report increased revenue in 2012 over the previous year. Back in 2009, 46 percent reported a decline in revenue from the previous year. This encouraging news is contained in the 2013 CML State of our Cities and Towns Report — CML’s annual municipal health check-up. Revenue increases vary throughout the state.
