Assistant City Manager, Randy Criswell, says homeowners may not feel the benefits of West Texas Gas potentially coming to town now, but it could spur competition in the future. "Yeah, it's not going to have any benefit for a homeowner other than the fact that maybe it raises some awareness with Atmos Energy that maybe there's someone in town, that hopefully that competition that will result in at least more thoughtful pricing anyway" Criswell said.
The fact that future developers will have another natural gas option is something the Mayor Quinn Alexander says reflects the city's development. "It was one of these things where you allow anybody to come in to provide some additional services as your city grows" he said.
The city is also in the process of the getting approved by the state as a Certified Retirement Community .
