The City of El Paso is the best run city in Texas, according to the latest rankings unveiled in a study released Monday by Wallethub.com.
“We are on the right track. El Paso employees work hard every day to meet the demand for services, and the results of the study validate their efforts to advance our community’s quality of life,” Mayor Dee Margo said.
Analyst for the personal finance website compared the operating efficiency of 150 of the largest U.S. cities using six service categories, comprised of 33 key performance indicators, which were measured against El Paso’s per-capita budget.
“We are so pleased that our collective work is getting recognized locally, statewide and nationally. A few years ago, El Paso adopted a strategic plan based on a vision that El Paso will have safe, beautiful neighborhoods, a vibrant regional economy, and exceptional recreational, cultural and educational opportunities. That vision is coming to fruition and is making the difference,” City Manager Tommy Gonzalez said.
The service categories include:
- Financial stability
- Infrastructure and Pollution
“We can learn how well city officials manage and spend public funds by comparing the quality of services residents receive against the city’s total budget,” Wallethub.com’s website states.
