NLR by the numbers

Posted By on Tue, Dec 29, 2009 at 6:11 AM

Another way of looking at the 2010 North Little Rock budget, approved yesterday by the City Council, 6-1.

28 percent -- the decrease in wholesale electric rates paid BY the city under a new contract beginning in 2010.

5 percent -- the decrease in retail electric rates paid by residents TO the city beginning in 2010.

94 percent -- the increase in the electricity "tax" on city customers. This is the amount taken from electric rates to pay for city government, up from $5 million in 2009 to $9.7 million in 2010.

100 percent -- the increase in city support for the mayor's beloved Inland Maritime Museum, from $100,00 to $200,000.
