EPISODE 039: Auburn Mayor Ron Anders talks about Covid, Football, Short Term Rentals, City Finances, and more!
Categories: Short Term Rentals, Local Info
Description & Show Notes: In this Episode, I'll talk with Auburn Mayor Ron Anders about a variety of topics and a "State of Auburn" recap at this interesting and challenging time in Auburn's history. We'll tall about how his family got started in the school book business, and what's on the horizon for that location, as well a ton of other interesting topics. We talked about the smashing success of the "pop up" Covid vaccine clinic across from the mall, the impact Covid has had on local small businesses, the University, and the places those 2 worlds intersect. We'll also look at the health of the city revenues before and after Covid shut everything down, how we're doing now, and his projections for the future, and some big time news about healthcare in Auburn in particular.
Other topics we covered were population growth, the AU President search, and how that might change student enrolment numbers, as well as an update on new apartment plans in both the student and "grown up" markets. We can't leave out the Short Term Rentals decision that is now set for a while, and what that looks like in reality. I'll outline the general concepts below:
