Contracts top city agenda

Woodward City Commissioners are slated to act on a number of contracts during their next regular meeting on Monday evening.

The meeting will start at 7 p.m. in the Commission Room of City Hall.

The agenda includes the renewal of the Panhandle Nutrition Service's (PNS) annual lease agreement for use of the kitchen facilities at the Woodward Senior Center.  PNS uses the kitchen to prepare daily lunches for the seniors who visit the center, as well as for preparing meals that are delivered to area shut-ins.

The city's annual contract for professional services with the Woodward Main Street Program is also up for renewal.  As part of this contract, the city pays the Main Street Program $45,000 a year in return for services promoting the creation of jobs and businesses in the community.

Two other contracts on the city's agenda concern management agreements between the city and K&T Catering, LLC.

The first agreement regards operations at the Crystal Beach Aquatics Center, in which K&T Catering pays the city a fee for the right to manage the water park based on a sliding scale percentage of total profits earned during the summer season.

The second agreement regards operations of the miniature golf course and the paddle boats at Crystal Beach Park.  As part of this agreement K&T Catering will pay the city 50 percent of total profits earned from both enterprises.

In other action Monday, city commissioners are slated to vote on allowing city utility customers free landfill privileges for the spring "Trash Off Day," set for April 12.

Commissioners will also consider approving a bid for 2 floating mechanical aerators.  According to information in the city agenda packet, only one bid was received for the aerators.  The single bid was for $46,202 from Slattery Construction Corp.
