A group of residents got together in Odessa to raise money to replace a pipe needed to control water flow at Lake Vanita. They brought their ideas before the Board of Aldermen at their regular meeting on Monday night.

Holmes says, “The money was raised by the group to make the necessary repairs to the lake and the board approved them to move forward on this.”

Other actions taken last night were the approval of fixing an ambulance along with awarding a bid for Santa Fe Glass to complete work on the front of City Hall.

The board also approved a Halloween event to take place at the 1912 school and they approved for a Finance Committee to be formed as well.
