Good News & Bad News

S

o Flower Mound, do you want the good news or the bad news first? Let’s get the negative stuff out of the way: Flower Mound is among the top 3 percent of cities nationwide with the most credit card debt, according to WalletHub’s research —based on data from TransUnion, the Federal Reserve and the Census Bureau. Residents have an average credit card balance of $4,512 and an expected payoff time of 17 months and 16 days. Denton residents, by contrast, have an average balance of $2,564 with a payoff time of 13 months and 27 days. Now for the good news! According to SafeHome.org’s research, Flower Mound is the safest city (with a population over 50,000) in all of Texas. The study used FBI crime data and census information to rank cities based on the number and type of crimes, the ratio of law enforcement officers to population and whether crime is going up or down. Flower Mound received an impressive 90.42 out of 100, which put it not just at the top of the Texas list but also in the top 5th percentile nationwide. Here are how a few other Texas cities ranked…
