FB Most Cost-Effective Place to Live!

Here's the text of an exciting press release from FB:

Taking into account factors involved in residential living, Farmers Branch was found to be the most cost-effective place to live in a 2008 survey of 19 Metroplex cities, conducted by the City of Carrollton.

The “Municipal Cost of Service” comparison takes into account population, median home value, property tax rate, homestead exemption, City sales tax rate and annual charges for property taxes, sewer, drainage and sanitation. Behind Farmers Branch in the top five were Addison, Plano, Frisco and Irving.

Farmers Branch City Manager Gary D. Greer appreciated the survey, saying it affirms that the Farmers Branch community is not only beautiful and safe, but an affordable place to raise a family.

“We pride ourselves on the delivery of the highest quality of service to our citizens,” he said. “That is a long-standing tradition in Farmers Branch that we are committed to continuing into the future.”

The Cities of Carrollton, Lewisville, Arlington, Allen and Richardson rounded out the top 10. Coppell, McKinney, Grand Prairie, Mesquite, Dallas, Garland, Denton, Fort Worth and The Colony completed the list. Full survey results are available at
