    CC)—The Enid Mayor and Board of Commissioners met this morning in special session. Commissioners will reconsider awarding a contract for the construction of the concessions and rides building at Meadowlake Park North. If approved, the project will provide an enclosure for reinstalling the Meadowlake rides and restroom facility on the north side of the park. The design of the facility matches the recently constructed Merry-go-round enclosure. City staff is recommending awarding the contract to Henson Construction Company for the base bid only in the amount of $392,212.

     

    Meeting as the Enid Municipal Authority, Commissioners failed to obtain a super majority for a resolution which would have directed Municipal Finance Services to proceed with issuing indebtedness for some capital improvements included in the recently approved budget for fiscal year 2015-16. The issue and possibly some budget items are expected to be reconsider at a future meeting. The Commission’s next scheduled meeting is June 2.

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma cities and counties would be unable to ban hydraulic fracturing or other oil and gas operations within their boundaries under a bill heading to the governor's desk. The Oklahoma Senate voted 33-13 today for the measure, which also prohibits local bans on wastewater disposal. Republican Sen. Bryce Marlatt of Woodward says the bill would ensure Oklahoma doesn't have a "patchwork of different standards" for oil and gas drilling across the state. He says regulation of oil and gas activities would remain with the Oklahoma Corporation Commission. Cities and towns would still be able to adopt rules and regulations concerning road use, noise, odors and setbacks and fencing requirements for oil and gas well sites.

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma Senate has given its approval to a $25 million bond proposal to complete the unfinished Native American Cultural Center and Museum near downtown Oklahoma City. With a 27-17 vote on Thursday, the Senate passed the bill that ultimately will transfer ownership of the museum and surrounding property to the city of Oklahoma City. The bill now heads to Gov. Mary Fallin, a longtime supporter of the project. The state already has spent more than $90 million on the museum, which began as a vision more than 20 years ago as a way to generate economic activity and highlight the state's Native American culture.
