Once you have submitted all invoices and proof of payment to the Downtown Odessa, Inc. (DOI) offices, the information is compiled and sent to the City’s Legal Department. The Legal Department reviews the information, compares it to the contract executed with the applicant, and upon completion of the review sends it to the City Auditor. The Auditor ensures that all necessary permits were applied for and executed, a final inspection was conducted, verifies the final work represents the proposed work, verifies the grant amount requested versus the amount actually spent, then submits the request back to the Odessa Development Committee (ODC) Compliance Committee to sign off on the request. The ODC Compliance Committee gives the authorization to the City’s Finance Department, who will then issue the reimbursement check. This process may take up to 4 weeks.
