Cary in the News
Some day soon, Cary residents could have a high-tech way to communicate with the town when the garbage truck skips their homes, leaving a full bin of trash at the curb. Instead of calling or emailing customer service, residents could speak to an Amazon Echo Dot and say, “Alexa, tell the town of Cary they missed my trash pickup.” A work order would be processed, and crews would make a special trip to collect the trash.
Kiplinger asked data aggregator FindTheBest to helpidentify economically healthy cities where early retirees should be able to work (if they choose) and prosper during their second acts. It took into account unemployment rates, household incomes and living costs, especially for housing and health care. It also screened the states for tax-friendliness based on its Retiree Tax Map. Finally, it sought out cities with low crime and high concentrations of residents ages 45 to 64 where one can safely enjoy early retirement with peers.
