BIG SPRING - With so many people moving to big spring for work, the city took steps on Tuesday night to help with the housing crunch.

The Big Spring City Council gave final approval to a workforce housing ordinance with one change.

They will now allow covered shipping containers to be converted into housing, even though many say it's an eyesore.

There is a catch though.

The Council plans to put restrictions on them.

Those containers will only be allowed in certain areas of town and they have to be up to code.

Details on that will be decided in the upcoming weeks.
