Q. What is the city’s biggest problem and how can you help solve it?

A. Aledo is unique in that its locale is near a large metropolitan area while at the same time it possesses a very distinct small-town charm. It is essential that we maintain that characteristic as we grow, but it will undoubtedly be a challenge. Two great advantages we have are that our water supply and wastewater system are good to go for our current demands as well as long-term growth. This allows us to focus on other needs such as police, municipal facilities, roads, maintenance and parks and recreation. In order to answer these demands, we have to increase revenue by growing the tax base through residential and commercial growth. Because the city has invested in developing a strategic plan based upon input from its citizens, we have a clear direction and have become more attractive to quality developers, entrepreneurs and investors.
