It was one of those things that just couldn’t wait.
Big Spring Independent School District trustees held a five-minute special meeting Monday to grant a utility easement at the sites where four new elementary campuses are being constructed.
The easement with ONCOR, the local electricity provider, will allow the company to move power lines out of the way so that construction of the new schools can proceed on schedule.
