Ector County Commissioners Approve Crossing Lights for Two New Elementary Schools


Ector County Commissioners made a decision Monday that will help many parents rest a little easier.

School zone crossing lights were approved for the two new ECISD schools, Buddy West Elementary and Downing Elementary.

School administrators requested that Ector County install and maintain the crossing lights. 

The county voted for the installation but not for the maintenance of the crossing lights.

"We really don't have the proper equipment to do that at this point in time. It would be very costly for us. So we have declined to maintain them at this point in time, but I suspect that we'll have further discussions with them to try to work something out," said Susan Redford, Ector County Judge.
The county currently maintains the school zone crossing lights at Murry Fly Elementary. 

Which the judge says has been a problem for the county on multiple occasions as they have a minimal amount of workers available to check on the school zone lights and maintain them.
