IOWA PARK, TX (KAUZ) -

The heavily debated affordable housing competition that could have seen a low-cost apartment complex built in the Iowa Park area has come to and end.
The city's proposal was beaten in a tiebreaker by a submission from the city of Cisco, Texas for a state program where tax credits build an affordable housing complex.
This is not the first time the city has had a developer lose out in this competition.
Jerry Flemming, Iowa Park City Manager, admits he is a bit perplexed why they keep finishing second.
    "Since we've tied for first place several years, that's a good indicator that maybe some year we are going to be a bride and not a bridesmaid," Flemming said. "But there's also a concern that maybe there's something holding us from ever winning that tiebreaker. And maybe it's not even worth submitting an applications."
Flemming adds that they are seeking clarity on why they have continued to be looked over and are weighing the benefits of submitting future applications.
