Hard Count was the governmental affairs consultant for the City of Buda, Texas from 2002 through 2010. The city was growing rapidly and desperately wanted a new HEB grocery store. The city learned that they needed new local option regulations to attract the store and Hard Count was tasked with making it happen. After a successful local option effort was passed the City attracted HEB, and within 1 year also attracted Wal-mart and Cabelas (which we assisted with). This success led to many more communities wanting to pursue the same local option remedies.
