7. Tabled changes on 3rd Street Project. Tom said we have some issues on the dimensions with the plans being that they do not match. Ron Gillihan spoke in regards to putting pipes in the far end of 3rd Street. Myers wasn’t correct on length of the curves and gutters. Tom asked Attorney Melton if he had come up with anything on the units. Mark stated no Ron and he have talked about it but he has not talked with Myer’s yet on the units pricing on a contract, if they have to submit change orders excessive of 10% or $150,000, whichever is less to rebid it. There are some questions whether or not we have to submit in accordance of competitive bidding act. He will call other cities and see how and what they have done. Tom asked Ron how soon he needed to know and he said he could wait till next month. Tom said the only issue is that if we have to do the change order, and we get down the way and have a little bit left, you may have to rebid what was left. That is something we are trying to stay away from. Mark said when he gets some answers, we can call Special Meeting.
8. No action taken on purchase of 207 E. Benton, Davis, Oklahoma, in the amount of $39,500.00. Tom said Stan asked for it to be on here last month but he didn’t make it, so they put it back on this month. Stan thought the City may want to buy it, tear the house down and put a parking lot on there since it was right by the library. Tom said usually only the elections are the only time he has noticed it being almost full. To buy the property, tear house down and making a parking lot there, it will cost around $100,000, don’t know the exact figure but close to it. They agreed to wait and spend the money on the Community Center.
