What was once just a small farming community over a century ago, Midland has grown by leaps and bounds thanks to the discovery of oil and gas throughout the area.
Midland now stands as one of the largest cities in West Texas within the Permian Basin located halfway between El Paso to the west and Dallas/Fort Worth to the east. Currently, the city is estimated to have over 134,000 residents calling Midland their home each day. That number is expected to jump even higher over the next five to 10 years with the influx of 10,000 to 20,000 people needed to fill jobs thanks to the billions of dollars invested into the area by many companies expanding their businesses with an eye on the future.

Employees across several departments from police, fire, city management, community development, health and senior services, animal services and many others all work in conjunction to make Midland a great place to be.
