Cost of Doing Business in Durham

Forbes recently published their "Best Places for Business and Careers" ranking in which Raleigh received the top spot.  Durham was ranked at #26 overall; #9 in education, #65 in job growth and #108 in cost of doing business.  Property taxes continue to increase in Durham and neighboring Orange County (which did not appear in the Forbes list).  With Raleigh (#29 in cost of doing business) right next door, Durham needs to take a serious look at eliminating barriers and unnecessary costs.
