City looking to buy property

Woodward, Okla. — The City of Woodward may be looking to expand Crystal Beach Park.

City commissioners are scheduled to consider purchasing property neighboring the park during their next regular meeting, which is being held at 7 p.m. Tuesday as city offices are closed Monday for the Labor Day holiday.

The property is located at 301 E. Cherry Ave., which borders the western perimeter of Crystal Beach Park.  According to information in the agenda packet for Tuesday's meeting, the city has the opportunity to purchase this property for $75,000.

In other business, city commissioners will address 2 items related to drainage issues at a property set to be leased to Tractor Supply Company.

The first item is an agreement between the city and landowner BBW Partners, LLC regarding the construction of storm water drainage improvements on the property.  Under this agreement the city and landowner agree to share the construction costs for the drainage system, with the city contributing no more than $100,000.

The second item is for the acceptance of a drainage easement from BBW Partners, LLC, where the city will be granted the easement once the storm water system is installed.

Other items on the city's agenda for Tuesday include:

• a restatement of the management agreement with Dunn Golf Group, LLC for management services at Boiling Springs Golf Club;

• a hangar rental agreement document and new hangar rental rate structure for West Woodward Airport;

• Amendment #2 to the Woodward Streetscape Project agreement with Cardinal Engineering, Inc. for a $12,000 increase to pay for additional civil engineering services through Sept. 27, 2013;

• a renewal of lease agreement with Mewbourne Oil Company, which rents space on the city's Airport Water Tower for the installation and maintenance of a radio antenna at a rate of $600 per year;

• a new ordinance establishing a $250 fine for gas drive-offs, also known as gasoline pump thefts, in city limits;

• a revision to the city's Personnel Policy Manual regarding accumulation of up to 19 vacation days for those with 20 years or more service with the city; and

• an interagency agreement with the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department regarding water services for Boiling Springs State Park.
