The Weatherford City Commission will meet 8 a.m. today at City Hall, 522 W. Rainey.

Before the meeting is called to order, commissioners will host a public hearing to get public input regarding proposed Weatherford Municipal Pool Complex improvements from a Land and Water Conservation Fund grant.

That hearing will begin 8 a.m.

After the hearing, the commission will be called to order and will vote on the consent agenda, which includes the previous month’s minutes, general fund claims, restricted sales tax fund claims, airport claims, Stafford Air & Space Museum claims and Hotel/Motel Tax operating fund claims.

The next item is a resolution calling for an election for Weatherford City Commission seats in Ward 1 and Ward 3. Those seats are currently held by Rick Miller and Warren Goldmann.

Item three will discuss an agreement between the city and Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for funding support in the amount of $3,000. If approved, this money will be used by CASA for program recruitment, training and volunteers.

Next, the commission will consider an agreement between the city and Multi-County Youth Services. If approved, this agreement will allow for the use of community intervention center services.

Item five will discuss an agreement between Blaine County and the city. If approved, this agreement will continue the current agreement regarding 911 call answering and emergency dispatch services.

The next item is an agreement between Southwest Oklahoma Regional (SWOR) 911 and the city. If approved, this agreement will continue the current agreement regarding 911 call answering and emergency dispatch services.

Item seven will discuss a proposed fee which, if approved, would establish a fee schedule for development related activities, including plan reviews and reinspection for the Weatherford Fire Department. This schedule of fees includes items such as fire alarm reviews and carbon dioxide enrichment systems.

Next, the commission will discuss a resolution supporting the city’s application for a Land and Water Conservation Fund grant. If approved, and the city receives the grant, monies from the grant will be used for improvements to the Weatherford Municipal Pool Complex.

Item nine will consider a resolution for casting a vote for trustee of the Oklahoma Municipal Retirement Fund to fill the expiring term of trustee representing District 7.

Following that item, members of the audience will have time an opportunity to speak, followed by remarks and inquiries from the commissioners.

After adjourning, members of the commission will reconvene as the Weatherford Public Works Authority.

After considering the consent agenda, minutes from the previous meeting and claims, members will consider bids for the water and sanitary improvements relocation for the Lyle Road project. Bids were rejected at last month’s meeting.

Following that discussion, members will consider a resolution to authorize the public works authority to seek financial proposals to issue a sales tax revenue note for a professional services agreement with Box Financial Securities.

A second vote for the same item is set as item four. Both those items, if approved, will name Box Financial Securities as bond council for any and all capital projects paid for using the Yes Weatherford sales tax monies.

Following that item, members of the audience will have time an opportunity to speak, followed by remarks and inquiries from the commissioners, before adjourning.
