EDC to meet on 4B project

Big Spring Economic Development Corporation board members will discuss the Type B project being proposed by the Big Spring City Council during a special meeting at 5:30 p.m. Monday in the Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce Board Room. During the meeting there will be consideration, discussion and possible action concerning the Type B project proposed by Mayor Tommy Duncan, which would set some economic development funds aside for the repair and rehabilitation of the city of Big Spring’s water and wastewater treatment plants and repair and replacement of water distribution lines. Big Spring City Council recently approved, on first reading, sending the measure to voters in an May 12 election. Second reading is planned during the council’s next meeting, which is Tuesday night.“Our board (BSEDC) has not formally discussed the Type B project and we feel we need to present that information to our board members in a formal setting,” Executive Director of the BSEDC Terry Wegman said. After the board has had its discussion, there will be allotted time for public input as well as additional board input, according to the agenda. The chamber board room is located inside the Chamber of Commerce building, located on 215 W. Third.
