After an hour and a half of deliberating behind closed doors, city council decided to postpone the decision. The council said Fort Stockton Holdings made an improved offer and they need time to consider the amendments.
"You can't rush into those things," said Fort Stockton Mayor Ruben Falcon. "I know people want us to do something and expect us to do something but at the same time when the decision is made you want it to be the right one."
"[The council wants] some time to study it and work out the agreement between the two parties," said Judge Joe Shuster of Pecos County.
The Fort Stockton city council hopes to reconvene next week and once again consider its options and make a decision, while the citizens of Pecos County and Fort Stockton wait to find out what will happen.
Big 2 asked what the improved amendments looked like, but we were told they weren't releasing that information yet. The previous offer included money to compensate the city for past legal fees, a $1.1 million one-time fee, and a $300,000 annual fee for city improvements.
