That’s an increase of over four percent. Amber Young at the controller’s office says it’s for the best possible reason-- people are earning more.</p><p>“It’s just things are doing better—individual income went up five percent,” Young said. “We’re seeing more people working again. Corporate went up about that amount.”</p> Fri, 14 Dec 2012 22:21:58 +0000 Ben Bradford 17715 at http://wfae.org
