Woodward, Okla. — Woodward City Commissioners are slated to act on a number of bids during their regular meting Monday at 7 p.m. in City Hall.

Recently the city solicited bids for a new compact track loader with closed cab for the Street Department, bids for roof repairs on several City of Woodward buildings, and bids for siding repairs at Crystal Beach Park.

According to the agenda packet, the following are the bids that were received for those items, as well as the recommendation from the appropriate department head.


• Arnett New Holland, Arnett - $49,825 with option for grapple - $2,100 and pallet forks - $575

• Western Equipment, Woodward - $57,500 with option for grapple - $2,250 and pallet forks - $650

• Recommendation from Street Superintendent Brian Luckett is to award to Arnett Ford New Holland in the amount of $52,500 (including grapple and pallet forks options)


The bids for roof repairs included work on City Hall, #2 Fire Station, 3 buildings at the Crystal Beach event complex, Boiling Springs Golf Course Clubhouse, Pavilions, and the Public Works Administration Building.

Four bids were received, each with a 90-day time frame.  However 2 bids were immediately rejected for having no or improper bid bonds.

• Byers Company, Sapulpa - $238,585.50

• Flying Out Roofing, Edmond - $248.384.03 (no bid bond)

• Moore's Roofing, Mooreland - $161,470

• American Roofing, Ponca City - $134,325 (unspecified materials and improper bid bond)

• Recommendation from Maintenance Superintendent Don Johnson is to award the bid to Moore's Roofing at an amended contract price of $150,028.30 due to a revision in the amount of material.


Only one bid was received for the siding work.

• Cedar Ridge General Contracting & Construction, LLC - $699 per square of Fiber Cement Siding, with a total of $97,161 for removing, replacing and painting 139 squares

• Recommendation from the maintenance superintendent is to reject the bid because it came in higher than expected.


In other matters, commissioners are slated to consider renewing the city's annual professional services agreement with Accurate Environmental Services.  Information in the agenda packet states that the contract would be renewed at the same $2,000 per month retainer fee for services related to drinking water and wastewater treatment systems.

Commissioners will also address a proposed ordinance that will increase the compensation for the municipal judge from $3,000 per month to $3,250 per month.  The ordinance would also set a 2-year term for the municipal judge to serve between Jan. 1, 2013 and Dec. 31, 2014.

The city leaders will also take time Monday evening to present 25-year service awards to those employees who have dedicated a quarter of a century working for the city.
