At their meeting Tuesday evening, City Council members made their first approval for an industrial district agreement with Goliath Energy Services to facilitate the development of a trucking company and industrial workforce housing.
Odessa Development Corp. members deferred making a decision Thursday on contracts with a workforce housing company.
ODC members discussed contracts regarding Target Logistics Management, a provider of workforce housing, in executive session. However, Keith said no decision was made and further consideration of the contracts will be moved to their April meeting.Posted:03/07/2012
