Study finds Fort Wayne is 18th best-run city

Fort Wayne is the 18th best-run city in the United States, according to a new study by finance website WalletHub. 

The ranking is from a comparison of 150 of the country's largest cities. To determine the ranking, the website created a "Quality of City Services" score and looked at 35 factors across six categories. That score was then measured against the city's per-capita budget. 

Fort Wayne performed better than Indianapolis in WalletHub's analysis, which placed 85th in the overall ranking,.

Fort Wayne ranked 25th in financial stability; 27th in education; 123rd in health; 48th in safety; 53rd in economy and 139th in infrastructure and pollution. The city came in 13th in per-capita budget.
