PITTSBURG, Kans. — Bouncing back from the pandemic. It’s part of Pittsburg Mayor Chuck Munsell’s latest “State of the City Address.”

He refers to 2021 as an extraordinary year — saying, despite the pandemic, sales tax revenues for the city are going up. He also highlights new businesses openings, and the fact that more jobs are becoming available.
