Aurora, IL One of the Best-Run Cities in America – No Way? Way
I have found something that will surely make Wayne and Garth so proud. It's a report that says Aurora, Illinois is one of the best-run cities in America. No way? Way.
This high praise for the hometown of Wayne and Garth of Wayne's World fame comes courtesy of Wallethub. It's a rundown of the best and worst-run cities for 2022 and Aurora comes in at a superlative #32. Schwing!
The Wallethub breakdown seems to focus on two big categories both with their own sub-categories: Quality of city services and budget per capita. In other words, something that makes accountants happy. Here are the exact words from their methodology so you understand where these numbers are coming from:
In order to determine the best- and worst-run cities in America, WalletHub compared 150 of the most populated cities across six key categories: 1) Financial Stability, 2) Education, 3) Health, 4) Safety, 5) Economy and 6) Infrastructure & Pollution.
What about the worst-fun cities in our area? Looking at you both St. Louis and Chicago which land at #133 and #140 respectively.
The top of the best-run list are both cities in Idaho. Way to go, Napoleon Dynamite. You can now eat your tots.
As for Missouri and Illinois, no other cities really come close to Aurora, Illinois. No word if there were two guys in a Pacer hatchback listening to Queen celebrating or not.
