A franchise will never be able to rent the facility but the facility can be rented for short-term use from private individuals.

He has installed a steel fence around the front to help secure while remodeling. DEQ has requested an inspection for asbestos and asked to stop work until this is complete. He was assured this process would take just a few days and then work will continue. We have issued a building permit for remodel to start when ready. We are waiting on an approval from DEQ for 8 inch water line to feed the new High School, they requested more than one fire hydrant since the length of the addition is 1600 feet. We had an engineer add another hydrant and when we get approval from DEQ, we will begin work. I have also price proposal from OG&E about lighting Hwy 7 from Interstate 35 into the City limits. I was asked by development group to consider this to help light up entrance to town. The cost would be $4,556.84 per month, yearly would be $54,682.08. I’m not sure the City budget can handle this but wanted the Council to be aware. I have tabled this right now due to funding.
