A recent article from the Fort Collins Coloradoan analyzes the financial position of the city of Fort Collins. In summary; this information is quite impressive.
A few things that stood out to me include the fact that the city has fund balances equal to 73% of annual revenues and has achieved a 15% debt reduction since 2005. Both of these figures signal long-term fiscal stability for the city!
The article also cites two 2011 statistics: a 5.2% increase in taxable sales over 2010, and a 5.8 month housing inventory (down from 11.5 months in 2010). Both of these figures indicate what I estimated had been happening all year; people in Fort Collins are spending money!
SunGlo is nothing but ecstatic about our decision to open a Fort Collins location in 2010. We believe this one of the best places in the nation to live and are excited to continue to make the finest window film available to the residents businesses of this great city!
