ODESSA, Texas (AP) — Ector County commissioners are deciding how to get rid of pigeons believed to be raising a stink at the county courthouse in Odessa.

An item on Monday's agenda calls for the county board to consider proposals for "bird exclusion services."

The droppings from the pigeons are believed responsible for a noxious smell in the county clerk's office.

The Odessa American reports (http://bit.ly/2d79y6Y ) the pigeon poop gets cleaned regularly and commissioners now are looking to consider proposals to keep the birds away.
