ODESSA - One hundred Odessa jobs are closer to being spared despite the flint hills plant shutting down.

The Economic Development Corporation voted to give Orion-Pacific five million dollars to keep part of the plant open.

They'll use the site to make a product only made in Odessa.

It's an adhesive that's used in tape and baby diapers.

It now goes to the City Council on May 26th.

The company could be operating by the end of the summer.
