Ector County One Step Closer To TxDot Grant For Road Funding

Commissioners Court is now taking steps to qualify for grant funding from TxDot.
Odessa, TX (Big 2 News) - Ector County Commissioners Court designated a transportation re-investment zone in west Odessa.

Commissioners say this is laying the groundwork for Ector County to receive funding from TxDot for road repairs.

Ector County Judge, Susan Redford says the designated area will not see an increase in taxes, and this is exactly why this specific block in west Odessa was chosen.

Redford explains that any excess of taxes that area receives will go to transportation funding, but this area is what County Commissioners call a "tax neutral area."

Redford tells us, "We don't like to dedicate tax dollars for certain projects. We like for that to be fluid from the general fund. So the commissioners court decided we wanted as tax neutral of an area as we possibly could."

The zone is solely to satisfy requirements by TxDot.
