ODESSA - New details regarding the fate of the closed Flint Hills Plant. 

On Tuesday night, the Odessa City Council said no to taking over a portion of the Flint Hills Plant to help facilitate a deal with the Rexene Corporation.

While the city doesn't want to own the plant, they do want to see it redeveloped.

The city has sent a letter to flint hills asking them to hold off on demolition plans. 

The letter also asks the company to sit down with the city and Rexene to see if a deal could be worked out. 

Rexene is interested in reopening a portion of the facility and creating some 100 jobs.
