STL and the Massive Overspend – BTTV – Episode 26

Recently, our Better Together research team made a discovery that is nothing short of stunning. After comparing the budgets of Louisville, Indianapolis, and St. Louis, we found clear evidence that our region overspends — massively — on municipal services. A conservative estimate of the overspend is 750 million dollars every year.

In this original Better Together short documentary, we take a look at why this excessive spending might be happening, and how other regions keep costs lower for their citizens.

Also on the show, we visit PrideFest 2014, where Better Together was proud to be a sponsor.
