Optimism Coming From The Benton Harbor Mayors Office Regarding City Finances

As the end of the current fiscal year approaches, Benton Harbor Mayor James Hightower remains optimistic about the city's finances.



Over $1-million has been contributed to the city's pension system, after years of not contributing at all. Hightower says the current general fund budget has a projected surplus of $2.9-million.



Benton Harbor continues to follow the path of financial stability. Hightower says it’s crucial to be mindful the emergency has ended but the city is not fully recovered as yet.
