City officials to discuss designer for miniature golf

Woodward, Okla. — Woodward City Commissioners will decide Monday whether the miniature golf course at Crystal Beach Park will soon get a makeover.

City commissioners will meet at 7 p.m. Monday in City Hall.

As part of their agenda, they are slated to act on approval of a designer for new mini golf facilities after the Woodward Parks and Beautification Board recently recommended moving forward with the project.

During the Parks Board's recent meeting, City Manager Alan Riffel said that the general contractor with the Boiling Springs Golf Course renovation indicated that his company had experience designing miniature golf courses as well.  Riffel said the city could potentially realize some "cost effectiveness" by having the contractor, which he said is Eagle View Golf, redesign the miniature course while already in town for the Boiling Springs job.

In another improvement matter, the city board is slated to vote on bids for 48th Street Phase III and Lakeview Drive Phase I projects.  The city agenda packet does not specify what these road projects will entail.

There will also be a vote on bids for a new maintenance building at Boiling Springs Golf Course to replace the one that burned down in July 2012.

In other action, the city board will receive a presentation from Ricky Hayes, of Retail Attractions, relative to comparison and market assessment reports.

The commissioners will also take action on a request from Boiling Springs State Park to dig a water well east of the park's office to be used strictly for irrigation purposes.

Various agreements are also on the city agenda, including:

• 2013-2014 lease agreement renewal with Panhandle Nutrition Service for the use of the kitchen at the Woodward Senior Center for its meal program;

• concessionaire agreement with Ken Vassar's K&T Catering company for providing food and beverage concessions for scheduled events and special events at the Crystal Beach Sports and Events Complex, excluding the Aquatics Center; and

• mowing agreement with Uncle Bill's Lawn Care Service in the amount of $1,580 for mowing 9 different areas around Woodward, including Circle Dr. Park and Lions Park, as well as potential mowing of abatement properties at an additional $250 fee per standard size lot.
