Provo has been recognized as the #5 Best-Run City in America by WalletHub! This ranking comes as a result of WalletHub’s extensive study of 149 of the largest U.S. cities, comparing their operating efficiency. Essentially, this is a measure of how well a city manages and spends public funds to provide quality services to its residents.
Making it to the top five is no small feat. It is an affirmation of our collective hard work, resilience, and commitment to making Provo not just an efficient and well-managed city, but also a wonderful place that we are proud to call home.
This recognition is particularly significant considering the challenges of the past year, during which we grappled with high inflation and other difficulties following the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite these trials, we managed to persevere and even excel, all thanks to the tenacity and spirit of our community.
I want to emphasize that this achievement is not mine alone, or that of the city leadership. It is YOUR achievement too. You, the residents of Provo, are the heart of our city. Your unwavering support and active participation in our community are vital factors that helped us secure this esteemed position.
I am incredibly proud to serve as your mayor, and I look forward to all that we can achieve together in the future. Let's keep up the great work and continue to make Provo a city that is not just efficient and well-run, but also filled with warmth, community spirit, and shared prosperity.
