I have often wondered how WH’s ranking systems work. While we rank 8th overall (cities of a population of 200K or higher) for how the city is ran we run into some concerning ratings on some other fronts;

  • Quality of City Services: 27
  • Debt Per Capita: 18
  • Financial Stability: 53
  • Education: 53
  • Health: 41
  • Safety: 44
  • Economy: 21

Like I said, not sure how WH came up with an 8 rating when we are obviously not doing that great in other categories except in Per Capita Debt. I am curious how this ranking came about, did they include the debt of Minnehaha and Lincoln County or the multiple school districts in the city that have extensive bond debt?
