Ector County Utility District

Press Release

February 15, 2024



 It is with heavy hearts that Ector County Utility District announces the passing of ECUD Board Vice President Sheila K. Black.  Her contributions to our community were invaluable, and she will be deeply missed.  Losing ECUD Board Vice President Sheila Black brings great grief to the entire District board.  Those who worked closely with Sheila understood she was devoted to making a difference in West Odessa.  One of the many projects that Shelia saw the completion of was the 45-million-dollar Tripp Pump Station project that has ensured better water distribution for West Odessa citizens.  Our thoughts and prayers are with her family, friends, and the entire District during this time of sorrow. 



The District will begin to accept applications to fill the open position on the board due to the passing of Sheila Black, Board Vice President.  The person appointed by the District’s Board will serve the remainder of Sheila’s term, which ends in November 2026.  Should that person seek to serve as a Director for another term, he or she would be required to run for office in 2026. Applications are available at the District’s office from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.  Currently, the Board has not set a date to stop accepting applications.  The Directors will make that appointment at one of the next two regularly scheduled Board meetings, either in March or April.
