Contention within city is good

To the editor:

Since 2000, the City of Ennis population has grown roughly 17.5%. Since 2002, City of Ennis expenditures have grown by more than 67%.

These numbers are based on data collected from city-data.com and the budgets presented to the public by the City of Ennis. The numbers do not include the expenditures of the Ennis Economic Development Corporation (EEDC), which, if included, would only increase the size of the numbers.

According to the 2013-2014 budget shown on the city web site, city expenditures have increased by more than $12 million from then through the current budget. I compared the budget for Ennis to five other cities in Texas with the same population size and it showed Ennis spends $10 million more than the city closest to it and $12-$15 million more than most of the others.
