Area 3 Report: Alice Housing Problems

Posted: Updated:
ALICE (Kiii News) - To say the city of Alice has been experiencing an economic boom is probably an understatement, and it's only getting better. Over the next five years, Jim Wells County is projected to create some 4,400 new jobs, and 7,200 new jobs over 10 years -- but there is one big problem.

There is currently no place for those new workers to live. Housing in Alice and Jim Wells county has simply not kept up with the demand.

Kiii News Reporter Mike DaSilva looked into the problem in this Area 3 Report.
