How does Greenville compare to others?

GREENVILLE — If you were looking for a North Texas city which compares with Greenville, which one would you choose?

A committee of Greenville City Council members will be tackling that question during a meeting Friday afternoon. The city or cities which are selected will help serve as a benchmark whenever the Council considers issues such as pay for city employees.

The Finance and Audit Committee is scheduled to meet at noon Friday in the Municipal Building, 2821 Washington Street.

Under new business the committee, comprised of Mayor Steve Reid and Place 2 Council member Dr. Joe Perks, intends to discuss Greenville’s “comparison cities.”

The six cities, also sometimes referred to as the “market cities” of comparable size to Greenville, include Cleburne, Lancaster, Rockwall, Waxahachie, Weatherford and Wylie.

The cities are often used as a gauge by the Council, when it comes to issues of property taxes, employee pay, quality of life and more.

The Finance and Audit Committee will likely be deciding whether to increase or reduce the number of cities used in the comparisons, or whether different cities should be included among the list.

The committee will then present its recommendations to the full City Council for its consideration.
