Cost of Living Posted On: 8/7/2012 11:32:16 AM
If you are a business that wants to move to Austin, I would first check this City's track record with the business community. I think you will find that your business would be better off in one of the surrounding communities where they welcome and support business. The City of Austin will committ to most anything to get you in but over time you will lose support. The City milks business for liberal gain. Cost of living in Austin is the highest in Texas which says something when compared to larger Cities like Houston, Dallas, etc....plus we are suppose to be a college town...far from it. This current Mayor and City Council supports a small fraction of this City using all business contributions to further their liberal agenda. Which does nothing but drive taxpayer costs up with no end in sight. We have been here 7 years, and the cost of living has risen over 25%, not to mention utilities (water & waste water) bills have all almost doubled, along with real estate values declining by 10-15 percent.
