A Good Financial Year for Columbus
January 13, 2017
According to The Columbus Dispatch, Mayor Andrew J. Ginther is going to have about four percent more city revenue than initially projected, to spread across the annual budget in the coming year. For people whose future places of residence are uncertain, this news might be important incentive to either stick it out in their current Columbus homes or to hire a Columbus moving company to bring them into the city, or maybe into a better neighborhood.

The latter type of move may be a real possibility for a lot of people who have been living in the area for a while. Ginther attributes the 869.5 million dollars in available cash to controlled spending and an increase in tax revenue, resulting from lower unemployment and perhaps a high number of recent wages. This means that for a lot of people, standards of living may be increasing at the same time that the city as a whole is obtaining more money to reinvest in local development and services.

The actual tax rate has been steady since 2009, when citizens voted their confidence in the city by raising it from two percent to 2.5. Today there is much reason for that confidence to persist, and for longtime residents to consider contacting a Columbus moving company to help them take advantage of the best examples of local growth and development. And for people who are observing these trends from just outside the city, a Columbus relocation service can get you in on the ground floor of a trend that we expect to continue through the foreseeable future.
