County to act on bids

Woodward, Okla. — The Woodward County Commission meeting, set for 10 a.m. Monday, Feb. 4 in the county courthouse, will kick off with several bid decisions.

The county board is slated to act on acceptance of bids for a forklift at the landfill as well as road materials and tires for all highway districts.

"The Landfill Board has met and will give their recommendation for a new forklift to the commissioners on Monday," County Clerk Charolett Waggoner said.

As for the road materials and tires, Waggoner said that Purchasing Agent Wendy Dunlap has tabulated the multiple bids received for the items in order to present commissioners with a clear price comparison for the materials.  The commissioners will then make their decision on which bid or bids to accept based on the tabulations, she said.

County commissioners will also consider going out for bids on an overlay project for county road NS-203 from EW-51 to EW-48 and from EW-43 to EW-42.

"That is on 8th Street," Waggoner said. "The first mile is a mile south of Hanks Trail, and they'll do that asphalt overlay there, then it'll skip 5 miles and they'll do the overlay from the Sharon-Shattuck road 3 miles north."

Finally commissioners will hear a request from R&L Financial Institutions, LLC for rezoning a tract of land from agricultural district to an industrial district.

"That tract of land is southeast of town. They had changed some of the land they owned to industrial district and now they're requesting for another tract. Both tracts are in the same area, they just want to keep it consistent," Waggoner said.
