County to hold hearing on rezoning request

Woodward, Okla. — County commissioners will hold a public hearing during their regular meeting Monday morning to gather input on a request to rezone a property north of Woodward.

The rezoning request comes from Justin Howard, who would like to rezone approximately 13 acres in the NW/4 of Section 18-T23N-R20W, a couple miles north of Woodward along Highway 34.

Currently the acreage is zoned A-1 General Agriculture and Howard would like to have it re-zoned to C-2 General Commercial for a possible mobile home park or apartments, according to County Clerk Charolett Waggoner.

In other business Monday, county commissioners are scheduled to receive a report from the Woodward Chamber of Commerce relating to a possible project to improve the Woodward County Fairgrounds.

"This is a preliminary work task force that is wanting to improve the fair barns with the possibility of putting up new buildings," County Clerk Charolett Waggoner said.

In other business, the county commissioners will act on he possible refinancing of 3 tractor trailers that were purchased in January.  This is in an effort to have the monthly payments for the equipment lowered through Stock Exchange Bank, according to Waggoner.

Commissioners will also discuss bids for a 2012 or newer 1 ton Cab and Chassis for the Mutual Fire Department to be modified into a fire truck, and a 2012 or newer SUV for the sheriff's office.

Waggoner said, "The SUV will replace an existing patrol vehicle at the sheriff's office."

The county board will meet at 10 a.m. Monday, Aug. 13 in the county courthouse.
