WILMINGTON, NC (GREATER WILMINGTON BUSINESS JOURNAL) -- A recent survey completed by a University of North Carolina Chapel Hill business professor shows Wilmington residents may be getting the biggest bang for their buck when it comes to paying for basic city services.

Wilmington ranks No. 1 in Michael Jacobs’ “N.C. Stewardship Index,” a chart that ranks the largest 25 North Carolina cities based on a system of metrics comparing their respective property tax rates, and water and sewer rates.

According to metrics used to complete the index, an average Wilmington family pays $3,969 a year in combined property taxes and utility services. Hickory ranked second with $4,147 a year, while Asheville ranked third at $4,274.
