Despite A Coronavirus Resurgence, This Central Kansas Town Is Optimistic About Reopening
Reopening brings a different set of challenges for smaller communities outside the Kansas City area, but Hillsboro, Kansas, is moving forward.
Hillsboro, Kansas, has managed better than they initially projected. "Most of the work that is done here supports agriculture, so all of the businesses in that support kept operating," said outgoing City Administrator Larry Paine. Sales tax revenues have not dipped in comparison to last year and some businesses have reported increased sales.
