WYSO's Lewis Wallace Talks To Mike Davis With The City Of Moraine Moraine Makes Economic Headway in Former GM Plant http://wyso.org/post/moraine-makes-economic-headway-former-gm-plant <p></p><p>Following GM’s pullout of the Moraine Assembly plant, the city lost residents, and an estimated 40 to 50% of its revenue. Five years later the city is working hard to revive Moraine’s economy. &nbsp;</p><p>Moraine’s big revenue losses came as a result of losing GM, Delphi and a number of smaller auto parts contracting businesses. To try and compensate for the losses, the city took a number of steps to curb expenditures – Some city employees were laid off, furloughs were implemented for others, and the water park – Splash Moraine- was closed.&nbsp;</p> Wed, 22 May 2013 21:46:43 +0000 Jerry Kenney 33596 at http://wyso.org Moraine Makes Economic Headway in Former GM Plant
