Paris is small but not a city and definitely not midsize by any standard. Maybe top ten in bumpkin villages in north texas but not even in the whole state.

It's a report on towns with populations between 10,000 and 50,000. They look at job numbers not necessarily the amount paid per job. You can't compare a small town economy to an urban one, its apples and oranges. There have been several small businesses open up in the past two years and skinner coming in added to that. Could more jobs be brought in, absolutely. You can't do that over night. When the local economy improves companies tend to gravitate that way look at Austin. It takes time. It is harder for this area due to not being directly on an interstate. If you want larger town options move to them just remember you pay for those options.

Wonder why the company that was supposed to have ranked Paris in this survey has never heard of Paris, Texas. Call them and ask. I call this entire story BS.

You can go to their website and view the rankings. Perhaps they do not know "Paris TX" because they rank every city in the US within certain population sizes. Paris ranks 101st nationwide for 2013 based on their report. Click on micropolitan. I didn't go thru the list to see if Paris was #6 ranking in Texas. I also did not research to see if the report has an validity.

This is another BS story. Paris according to the last two U.S. census reports... population remains at 25,000 that by anyone's definition is not fast growing.
This is another sample of The Paris News printing a false PEDC story.

Another story reports that the PEDC has saved 2000
manufacturing jobs while adding 400 to 600 new jobs
during the past year. An outrageous lie.
There are about 4,200 manufacturing jobs in our city.And they saved half of the jobs???
