It is not uncommon for people to think of City staff as only those at City Hall. In fact, City Hall staff are closer to only 15% of all those employed by the City. Almost 400 people are employed full-time by the City of Cape Girardeau. The majority are from the Cape-Jackson-Scott City area (graph). Year-round, the City also employs 400 part-time and seasonal workers.
This graph is an excerpt from the City’s 400-page budget found at www.cityofcape.org/finance.
