Williams states emphatically “We have made tremendous progress – however – we are not done with getting our costs in line with our revenues. We need to restore declining fund balances, address long-term legacy costs, keep pushing back against the escalating water-sewer rates and continue to spur economic development. We need to achieve all these things while balancing to maintain the level of service and quality of life our residents and business community have come to expect in Canton.”
