ODESSA - The Ector County Commissioners Court has voted to keep the railroad crossing on Cargo Road open.
The county had considered closing the crossing due to a high number of accidents. The commissioners are asking that the railroad put up better safety controls in the area.
In other commissioners court news, there was a heated discussion today about the renaming of the Southside Senior Center. Both those for and against the renaming spoke out.
NewsWest 9's Geena Martinez was at today's meeting and will have both sides of the issue tonight on NewsWest9 at 5 and 6.
