I don't see why we cannot get some industry here in this town! That would be a good place to put industry as it backups close to the industrial center. We need some industry to help support our economy instead of restaurants, liquors stores, and the like. I know that access to the major highway is a pain for that part of town, but can be accessed by way of 439/Rancier. Why can't we bring in a factory to produce tank parts or munitions? We have Fort Hood right here, what a no-brainer! We need to have another large employee to put a lot of people to work, instead of lots of places to spend the money. If we go to war again or if Fort Hood bugs out, we will turn into another ghost town like we did in Desert Storm. Bring in the industry city council!!
