Public hearings on annexations scheduled here

STANTON - A public hearing is planned later this month for input on proposals to add numerous properties into the Stanton city limits.

A number of the properties have been for years in or near the city limits and many of them have been receiving utilities - at a higher rate - than those who are part of the city.

City officials explained that most of the property owners have never asked to be inside the city limits, but that both city administration and council members decided it was time to include them into the city.

A number of the properties are along Hwy. 137.

At least two other properties present different challenges in that both are farther outside city limits and both have owners requesting annexation.

One is the Martin County Hospital, which is proposing to build a nursing home, additional laboratories as well as facilities to house visiting specialists and other employees.

Public meetings to discuss what to do about these roads

Martin County residents who travel the interstate to Midland and Odessa don’t for a minute have to be told how crazy it is out there amongst all of the trucks and traffic.

In an ongoing effort to make it a little more sane and safe on the interstate, the state’s highway department folks have scheduled two public meetings to discuss some possible solutions to all that craziness.

The two public meetings will discuss proposed improvements on Interstate 20 in both Ector County and Midland County.

The first meeting is from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Mar. 25 at the Midland Horseshoe’s Education Building.

The second is from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Mar. 26 at Odessa College in the Joe Zant Community Room in the Saulsbury Campus Center.

The meetings are designed to present the proposed improvements along Interstate 20 from FM 1936 in Ector County to just east of Business Interstate 20 in Midland County.

What about these roads?

Editor’s Note: It won’t come as a surprise to anyone who lives here that the huge increase in truck traffic thanks to the oil boom has destroyed roads and highways to the point where the state is just not keeping up with repairs - AND that those same roads are treacherous for drivers of all sized vehicles. Following is a story that indicates some other folks in other parts of the state are beginning to understand what’s going on out here.
