County approves zoning change

Woodward, Okla. — After having to go through the process twice, some Woodward County property owners were successful Monday in getting their property rezoned.

The approval was gained by Fisher Baker, LP., for their 36 acre plot south of Woodward during Monday's weekly Woodward County Commission meeting.

After the public hearing about a month ago for a larger portion of the same plot of the land situated south of Woodward on the east side of State Highway 270 garnered some opposition, the owners reached an agreement to only rezone a small portion of it.

After reapplying commensurate with the agreed upon changes and no further objections being voiced, both county commissioners present Monday voted to approve the change. The property was rezoned from C-2 (commercial) to I-2 (Industrial).

District 3 County Commissioner, Vernie Matt was absent from the meeting to help with the Oklahoma Youth Expo in Oklahoma City.

Commissioners also approved the reappointment of two men to another term serving on the Woodward County Fair Board.

Martin Andrew Maher was approved for another term as District 3 representative and Dennis Nail was approved for a second term representing District 2 as its representative on the fair board.

"This will be a 4-year term unless they change that again," said Woodward County Clerk, Charolett Waggoner.

Commissioners opened sealed bids from two communications companies, Pioneer Telephone and CDOT Communications for an updated telephone and voice mail system for the Woodward County Health Department.

Commissioners voted to table the vote to have the complicated accounting of each system and the cost of maintenance and repair contracts tabulated for better understanding.
