HB Ranks #14 "Best Run City in US"; #1 in "Quality of City Services"
posted on 07/01/2019.

Huntington Beach was named 2019's 14th Best-Run City in America in a recent study from the leading personal finance outlet WalletHub.com. You can find the full study here: https://wallethub.com/edu/best-run-cities/22869/

To determine the effectiveness of local leadership, WalletHub compared 150 of the largest U.S. cities based on their operating efficiency. For each city, WalletHub constructed a “Quality of City Services” score — comprising 37 key performance indicators grouped into six service categories — that was then measured against the city’s total per-capita budget.

How Well Is Huntington Beach Managed? (1=Best Run; 75=Avg.)

  • 36th – Financial Stability
  • 1st – Education
  • 5th – Health
  • 7th – Safety
  • 16th – Economy
  • 132nd – Infrastructure & Pollution
  • 59th – Total Budget per Capital

We are so pleased!
