The Altus Municipal Authority (AMA) and City Council will meet Tuesday, Oct. 16 at 6:30 p.m. in Council Chambers.
During the AMA the trustees will consider, among other things, two items regarding electrical issues. One is the purchase of special meters and the other is providing electrical service to S&D Farms, Inc. for an irrigation pump house located just outside the city limits.
At the City Council meeting, Gayla Smith will present the family awarded the home being built by Habitat for Humanity. This new home is at 1129 N. Willard. Pedrick Shivers and Kathryn Miller and their five children will be the homeowners.
During the council meeting members will consider eliminating smoking from the City Complex and other City buildings, grounds, vehicles and equipment. This would require amending the City’s Personnel and Policies Procedures manual and an ordinance in Altus Code 1980. These actions are part of the process to apply to become an Oklahoma Certified Health Communities City. That step would, in turn, enable the City to apply for grants totaling $42,000 as part of the process.
Other items for consideration include a resolution on the Hotel/Motel funds that are to be transferred to the Economic Development Corporation (EDC); and vehicle and liability insurance for the City.
