Tyler Population Surpasses 100,000

Tyler has surpassed the 100,000 mark -- in population, that is.

That means our growing city will likely attract more businesses and industries in the future. But Mayor Joey Seeber says the city also has to maintain its quality of life and infrastructure.

The city hired a demographic consulting firm to survey the city's inhabitants.

Since the 2000 Census, Tyler has gone from 85,097 people to now, 101,106 people. The next Census in 2010 will confirm the count.
