Odessa was notified last week that it did not receive the Community Development Block Grant. Click to hear KMZU’s Kristie Cross speak with City Administrator Jon Holmes:
Holmes believes they may have been turned down because they received a $500,000 Community Development Block Grant in the past, and the amount of funds available is limited. Odessa would have used the grant for improvements to the wastewater system. Holmes said they still intend to apply for more grants in the future.
