Alice TX – No Drilling, But Still a Boom Time

Alice Texas doesn’t sit in the fairway of the Eagle Ford Shale, but it sure seems to be benefiting. A $6 million sales tax surplus was realized over the past year. The city budgeted income of $650,000 per month and only one month came in under $1,000,000.

For reference, Alice’s population is somewhere around 20,000. Companies with hundreds of employees make a big impact.
