The Altus Municipal Authority and City Council held regular meetings in Council Chambers on Tuesday. The AMA meeting began with a check presentation by Jennifer Rogers of OMPA to Altus Power. See, Altus Power Awarded CUP Certification and Check, story below for more details.

The AMA consent agenda was approved, and City Manager David Fuqua gave a finance report for both AMA and City, for the month of July 2015.

Concluding the AMA meeting was the approval to award bid #18040 for 15 grey composite direct burial fiberglass poles w/4” arms to WESCO Distribution of Amarillo, Texas, for a total bid cost of $8,925, and five black composite direct burial fiberglass poles w/4” arms to Texas Electric Cooperative of Georgetown, Texas, for the total bid price of $3,285.

Immediately following the adjournment of the AMA Meeting, the City Council meeting was called to order.

The City Council consent agenda was approved.

Council approved Resolution No.2015-36, authorizing the City of Altus to make an application as Applicant of SWODA for the Fiscal Year 2016 Community Expansion of Nutrition Assistance (CENA) Program grant funds for the Altus Senior Citizens Center in the amount of $2,500 to purchase kitchen equipment. The equipment would include a gas stove with 10 burners and two ovens, all for the benefit of the senior citizens.

Discussion and vote was taken to approve an Addendum to the Amended renewal of the Altus Community Work Center contract between the Oklahoma Department of Corrections (DOC), and the City of Altus for the 2015-16 Fiscal Year. Revision was done on paragraph one on page two to add the use of inmates by Southwest Oklahoma Community Action Group, Inc. (SOCAG) at Lincoln Center and the Wilson Center, providing services that serve a public purpose as approved by the DOC. This would involve five inmates.

There was no new business following the executive session, and the City Council meeting closed out with the City Manager’s comments and reports.

City Manager David Fuqua, announced that an organization chart will be distributed to the departments. He added that he has met with contractors on the Rotary Building, and information will be provided to the Council in order to make an educated decision on what to do in the matter of the Rotary Building.

Everyone welcomed the newest City employees, Matt Wojnowski as Assistant City Manager, and Johnny Barron as City Engineer and Public Works Director.
