Aurora ranks among the best-run cities in the U.S., according to a recently released survey by WalletHub.

The company measured the operating efficiency of the nation's 150 largest cities by looking at their economy and overall finances, city services (such as schools and public safety), and budget per capita.

Aurora took 20th place in the survey, scoring particularly high marks for education, health and public safety. Nampa, Ida., Provo, Utah, and Boise, Ida., rounded out the top three. By contrast, Chicago took 140th place, while Detroit and Washington, D.C., were at the bottom.
