from Interim City Manager Keith Skelton.
Outgoing Ward 4 Commissioner Daryl Legg was recognized for his service to the city during Monday night’s city commissioner meeting. Legg was out of town on business during last month’s meeting when the other outgoing council members were recognized.
In other business, the commissioners approved a Code of Ethics and a City Council Handbook, along with participation in the Oklahoma Municipal Assurance Group, or OMAG Recognition program. The city is able to be refunded approximately $9,900 on liability insurance and worker’s compensation premiums by adopting the handbook, which includes the code of ethics.
Commissioners also approved a purchase order not to exceed $34,000 for the purchase of 624 new poly carts for the sanitation department, which was more cost-effective than repairing the older ones.
Ward 2 Commissioner Philip Gay addressed the council regarding water runoff issues at the water treatment plant, which have been an ongoing concern for several years. Interim City Manager Keith Skelton will consult with the contracted Hawkins-Weir Engineers, which are very familiar with the property, to discuss options. Skelton will be able to handle costs up to $20,000; anything over that will need to be presented to the commissioners at the June meeting.
