First city commission of the meeting set

Woodward, Okla. — Woodward City Commissioners have a short agenda for their first meeting of the new year.

The city commissioners will meet at 7 p.m. Monday in City Hall.

Even the consent agenda is brief, with only 4 items, including:

• minutes from the Dec. 16 meeting;

• membership appointment for Stub Dezort to serve another 3-year term on the Woodward Senior Citizens Center Board;

• a resolution establishing the April 1 municipal election for the commission seats for Ward 2, Ward 3 and At Large, and setting a candidacy filing period from Feb. 24-26; and

• membership appointments for Mike Hensal and James Cline to each serve additional 3-year terms with the Woodward Airport Authority.

Outside the consent agenda, there are only 2 action items listed.

The first is a 10-year renewal of a franchise agreement with Classic Cable, Inc., doing business as Suddenlink, which allows Suddenlink to construct, operate and maintain its cable system in Woodward.  

As part of the franchise agreement, Suddenlink will pay the city 5 percent of gross revenues from the provision of cable services within the franchise area.

The second item is a service agreement with H. W. Lochner, Inc. relative to engineering and architectural services for hangar area development at the West Woodward Airport.  As part of the agreement, Lochner will conduct field investigations and surveys to produce construction and design plans as well as other project documents in return for a $32,650 lump sum payment from the city.
