Woodward City Commissioners approved an ongoing lease agreement with Panhandle Nutrition and also approved the contract for professional services with K&T Catering LLC., the company which provides management services for the Crystal Beach Park attractions.
The commission met Monday night.
Commissioners approved a new contract with K&T for management of the newest attraction at the park, the miniature golf course located on the southwest part of the park and slated to open on April 10, according to Kenny Vassar of K&T.
Commissioners also renewed the water park contract between the city and K&T Catering, LLC.
Vassar’s comments and updates for the commissioners though, were primarily related to the opening of the paddle boat and mini golf attractions this year.
“We want this to be a big party type atmosphere for the opening of the miniature golf and the boats,” he said.
The grand opening celebration will begin at 4 p.m. April 10 (Thursday) weather permitting, he said.
Vassar addressed the city commission with his and Trenton Sunderland’s plans for the new attraction.
“The city has done a great job in creating a first-class course,” he said. “It is a putting green course basically. We will see how it goes this year and the next year we may be adding a few things to it…like a windmill."
K&T will also continue operating all the concession for the entire park, he said.
City commissioners voted to purchase two aeration pump for the sewage lagoons from the low bidder who provided the items according to the specs required. The pumps were approved for purchase from Slatery Construction Corp., for $46,202.
In what was the renewing of a continuing agreement with Panhandle Nutrition, commissioners approved the ongoing contract between the meal service and the city so that is may remain in its present location.
In other business, commissioners approved the city’s participation in Trash Off Day, a national holiday of sorts whereby utility rate payers in Woodward can utilize the land fill free of charge for one day.
Commissioners also unanimously supported continuing the relationship and financial support of Woodward Main Street. The city pays $45,000 per year in support of the agency’s promotion of businesses and the creation of jobs in Woodward, according to its contract.
