One of America's Best-Run Cities Ranks Among the Top
The city of Irving ranks among the top of the list of the best-run cities in the United States according to 24/7 Wall St., a popular financial news source.
In applauding Irving, the city was recognized for having a double AAA bond rating from Standard & Poor's and Moody's Investor Services, as well as having low unemployment and violent crime rates.
"Irving has become a lone star model of fiscal achievement," said Irving City Manager Tommy Gonzalez. “When great news like this spreads across the financial online networks, it certainly helps support our economic development and relocation efforts."
The site also recognized Irving’s recent receipt of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award (2012), adding Irving is the second city in the nation and the first in the state of Texas to receive the award as well as the first municipality in Texas' history to receive the Texas Award for Performance Excellence (2011).
