Two professors from JMU conducted a study estimating the effects of growth in the county. It was done to help supervisors project what the revenues and costs are going to be as the population grows. Tonight, the professors reported the main findings of the study to board members.

"The cost from the county to additional people, from population growth is higher than the revenues," says David Kreutzer, a JMU Professor. "The costs per person, per year as population grows is about $4,000, and the revenues are around $2,500."

The study did not take into account private businesses in the county. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
