budget case study
Michael Rathbone

City residents care about how much they pay for government services. For those in Saint Louis and Kansas City who are wondering how much they pay, they now have an easy resource to check. The Show-Me Institute presents a new case study: “Breaking Down Revenue: How Kansas City and Saint Louis Compare to Six Other Cities.”

This case study examines government revenue, per person, of Saint Louis and Kansas City along with six other comparison cities (Denver, Indianapolis, Louisville, Oklahoma City, Omaha, and Tulsa). It examines tax burdens on residents (in total and as a percentage of personal income), the amount of fees collected, and other tidbits of information that the general public might find interesting. Please give it a look.
