City Council meets tonight at 7 p.m.
The Guthrie City Council will meet tonight for their regularly scheduled meeting in the city council chambers. The council will have a workshop at 6 p.m. to start the night.
The council and the Guthrie Public Works Authority (GPWA) will meet starting at 7 p.m.
If approved, the council and the GPWA will not meet on July 2 due to the holiday, so their next scheduled meeting will be July 16.
The workshop agenda has a discussion of the fiscal year 2012 audit and an update from the rate and fee advisory committee.
The GPWA has a very short agenda with a consent agenda and voting to cancel the July 2 meeting.
The council has an 11 item consent agenda with four of the items being renewal of leases for the sports fields and Highland Hall for the Logan County Aging Services.
On the business agenda is the canceling of the July 2 meeting to lead things off. The council will also take up some airport board business with a consideration of changing the boards meeting time starting in August. The board currently meets at 4:30 p.m. on the second Tuesday of the month. The concern brought up at the last meeting was the time was not conducive to allow the general public to have input. While there is no set time, Guthrie City Manager Sereniah Breland told the airport board last week that 6 p.m. was the preferred time for all boards to meet so they were transparent to the community. There is also an opening on the board with current chairman Lamar Wade’s term set to expire. Wade, City Councilwomen Sharyl Padgett and Hugh Adams have all applied for the board.
The council will take up a resolution establishing the 911 emergency telephone fees for 2014 calendar year. There is also a resolution for the city to approve and support the development of Cottonwood Village, a 50 home site for senior citizens. The site will be located east of Academy Road at the intersection of Owen Park Boulevard. The resolution also calls for waiving $14,000 worth of building permit fees and other city provided services.
The council has also scheduled an executive session to discuss litigation with Total Investment of Guthrie. Total Investment is the contractor in charge of the expansion at the airport. The council visited with this topic a couple of months ago when the engineer was asking for the city to declare Total Investments in default of their contract. The council is then scheduled to come back into public session to discuss what action will be taken as a result of the executive session.
