City Employee Residence

The Southern provided this handy graph showing where Carbondale city employees live. Just over half reside in Carbondale, while a little less than half live in Murphysboro, Carterville and DeSoto, all of which conveniently fall within the 9 mile limit for residences and all of which have cheaper housing, and more available for purchase, than does Carbondale.

In case you have forgotten, over 70% of the housing in Carbondale is rental property, meaning that many who want to own a home have to go outside the city limits in order to find one.
