In the final city council meeting for City Manager Sereniah Breland, the council approved a permit for water lines to serve the upcoming construction of Love’s convenience store, awarded a bid for technology services and tabled a proposed agreement that would bring in a music and arts festival.
Before the meeting, a reception was held for Breland, whose final day with the City will be June 5. Last month, Breland accepted a similar position in Alvin, Texas.
The council took no action on Breland’s interim or full-time replacement following an executive session.
The council accepted a bid from NORPS LLC for basic technology services. The service will cost the City $850 per month and an assessment will be conducted within 45 days of the contract at a cost of $3,500.
The City of Edmond, who previously over-looked the contract service, notified the City they wanted to terminate the contract. The contract with Edmond was set at $1,106. 86 per month.
The Department of Environmental issued a permit for the City to construct water lines for Love’s Travel Stop being constructed at I-35 and Highway 33 corridor.
A lease agreement for the Taloa Music & Arts Festival was tabled for further consideration by the City’s attorney. Promoters are hopeful to conduct the music event throughout downtown streets in late September. Organizers say the event would bring up to 5,000 visitors with three stages on showcase with approximately 60 artists from multiple states.
