Improved oil technology has launched new era in Cotulla

Jul 17, 2010 Full story: San Antonio Express-News 11

Over his long lifetime here, Bill Cotulla, 74, whose Polish great-grandfather founded this South Texas ranching town in the 1880s, can recall only one other period of prosperity that faintly resembled the current bustle.

I want to know about the oil boom and what is needed in the area as far as bussiness. Sounds like things are looking up.

We need more housing, more resturants,another grocery store to supply the demand with good food, office supply store and businesses that open early and close late!! Country store stops taking orders at 9 pm, uncle moe closes early too, valentines closes at 5 pm, etc!) In order for our community to succeed we must invest in it!!! A nice place for drinks like Chilis or something like it would be nice!

Yet this city is still crumbling. when is the money suppose to kick in? Are we going to still start road fixing jobs and not finish? Is the city going to vote itself raises and upgrade their furniture renovate their offices and their company vehicle, create secretaries for secretaries? the way the city is run right now is the way it's going to be run after money rolls in. You can bet the money will dwindle away and no one will know what happened.

Why don't the city counsel or someone make sure that a share of the jobs be set aside for the local people.Surely they are not going miss a chance to improve local job placement.

<quoted text>ain't nobody going to get rich in cotulla but the oil companies.This boom is only a part time thing,these companies and these jobs will be long gone in a few month and cotulla will be the same.dont get me wrong its good that there here creating jobs but the truth is these are the wrong kind of job cotulla needs. it only adds to the low lifestyle that cotulla is known for.no career just a partime job that
ends and your back on welfare..
A job is a job whether it's for 6 months or 10 years! You get a job and earn a career if you work hard enough to get noticed! If a company likes the way you work they will keep you but you might have to move. Any kind of growth in Cotulla is great and a great opportunity for our people to get experience working on different jobs.

Notice all the RV trailers in town? They are all from out of town that don't plan to stay. Notice the cost of rent went up for a lot of people? Notice the cost of property went up. They oil werkers are being catered too. Notice some people around you that are still unemployed? Notice how much more frustrating it is to shop at super S, go to Country store, uncle Moes with all the extra people around. People think it's a good thing cause it brings jobs. These oil rigs brought workers along with it. It's more like a parasite. It takes but gives little to nothing in return. When they leave these land owners better know what they are doing or they'll end up with huge tax bills and a land that can't be restored.
