We’ve been getting a lot of letters and feedback of late on how our local towns spend tax money. A lot of people are asking questions or making comments.
We’ve been putting together a series of stories that looks at how Amesbury and Newburyport spend their money. The two cities are very similar in population and spending, making for a fairly valid comparison. I think the issues that we’ve been looking at (and will present in the series) will be enlightening to our readers. There’s some significant differences in some areas of how they do business.
I expect the series will start in the next few days; we’re just wrapping up some of the details now.
