City of Odessa deputy city manager Phillip Urrutia will ask the Odessa City Council today to approve the purchase of two garbage trucks and an additional armored vehicle for the Odessa Police Department.

The new vehicles would reportedly cost a total of $763,764.

Urrutia said over the phone on Monday afternoon the two rear load refuse trucks that will be requested would replace the two oldest garbage trucks for the Solid Waste Department, while the armored vehicle would join the OPD fleet, but take over main responsibilities.

“These are scheduled and budgeted replacements,” Urrutia said about the two new garbage trucks. “The units now are seven years old and that’s the life that we keep on them and then we replace them in that time frame. The old ones will go to auction.

“What we are asking council for on this agenda item is to keep the old unit as a spare. It would be in addition to the current unit that we have.”

The items for approval will be presented during the Odessa City Council meeting at 6 p.m. today in the fifth floor at City Hall, 411 W. Eighth St.

There will also be public hearings about rezoning from planned development-office to special dwelling district south of the intersection of Santa Isabella Street and Mission Boulevard. There will also be rezoning about the area west of the intersection of N. Grandview Avenue and Boise Drive.

City Council will also hear information on repealing existing Odessa City Code Chapter 4 “Business Regulations” an article 4-5 “Sexually Oriented Businesses” and adopting a new Article 4-5 “Sexually Oriented Businesses.” The ordinance will be presented by Dan Jones.

The Odessa City Council will also have a briefing at 5 p.m. today in the fifth floor conference room at City Hall, 411 W. Eighth St., about a new work schedule for Odessa Fire Rescue.
