7. Consideration and possible action to approve Resolution #547 on City of Davis’ Medical Marijuana Ordinance. McCurtain made motion to approve. Second by Davis. Vote: Davis, yes, McCurtain, yes, Jones, yes, Oakley, yes, Parks, yes. Tom said this is just starting an Ordinance to adopt the new state’s bi-law on Medical Marijuana use. It’s written to the state laws as far as the restrictions. The only thing we have in there is the licensing fee, in which we are asking for $500 which is the same as a liquor license. The state allows you to go up to $2,500 but we didn’t see the necessity of doing that. Attorney Mark Melton said there are some cities around us that are pretty prohibited and he feels they are going to be challenged quickly and he thinks’ they will all go down. Oakley asked in regards to the inspections where it says municipal inspector. Tom answered saying it’s the same inspections that we normally do on any business as far as construction, electrical and plumbing, just making sure the building is up to code. This is totally the same as the state and there’s nothing in ours that someone could take us to court over. He has had one individual call and asks him in regards to this.
8. Consideration and possible action to approve Emergency Medical Marijuana Ordinance for the City of Davis. McCurtain made motion to approve. Second by Davis. Vote: Davis, yes, McCurtain, yes, Jones, yes, Oakley, yes, Parks, yes. Tom said he is asking that you pass it as an emergency so that will go into effect immediately and does not have the thirty day waiting period. Mark said it will be awhile before anybody is capable of selling any marijuana because it has to be grown in Oklahoma and has to be a licensed grower.
9. Consideration and possible action to approve Halloween Parade for October 27th at 4:00 p.m. with carnival to follow at Fullerton Park. McCurtain made motion to approve. Second by Jones. Vote: Davis, yes, McCurtain, yes, Jones, yes, Oakley, yes, Parks, yes.
10. Consideration and possible action to approve to set trick or treat night for October 30th. Davis made motion to approve. Second by Jones. Vote: Davis, yes, McCurtain, yes, Jones, yes, Oakley, yes, Parks, yes. Halloween night is on Wednesday, which is church night so I would like to have it scheduled for Tuesday, October 30th.
11. Public Safety Report by Danny Cooper. The report is in the packet and the only other thing is they are having a hard time getting reserve officers to work at the school due to their full-time jobs. He, Lieutenant English, and Animal Control Officer, Chipper have been helping out by going to the school at times. Tom said he talked to the school superintendant and he wanted to thank the City again for allowing this.
12. No Chamber Report. Tom said they are busy getting ready for the Hills of Oklahoma Bike Tour.
13. No MCIA Report. Tom said she is in Alaska right now.
14. City Treasurer Report by Brandy Claxton. Brandy said they just paid half a million dollars on the bank note. She also brought Council a balance sheet for the budget. She only included the accounts that they would be discussing tonight. She said on the Chamber Report that on September 13th they will have guest speaker, Wayne Eidson to speak and September 27th, the Speaker of the House, Charles McCall will speak.
15. City Manager Report by Tom Graham. Paying the $500,000 on the bank note, that reduces 5 years of payment and will also save us $124,000 of interest. We have received final payment from State Emergency Management on FEMA projects at Turner Falls Park in the amount of $77,487.99 and is deposited into that grant account. I would like for the Council to consider that we hold these finds until we get control of the old Methodist Church (Community Center) in case we need to repair or modify for our needs. Update on ODOT road project-appears the plans for bidding will now be after the first on the year. Third Street Project progressing, however; the steady amount of rain has put this behind. They will be finishing the installation of new water line then have to connect the service lines and pressure test and after final testing approval from DEQ on water quality, the will start on road.
16. No Appearances and petitions from the audience. (Limit of three (3) minutes for each.)

Second by Jones. Vote: Davis, yes, McCurtain, yes, Jones, yes, Oakley, yes, Parks, yes. Justin Ramsey comes excited as he’s ever been and has been working with new organization, Outdoor Power Sports, for about a year now. They have done a few events out at CBR and have been talking back and forth about some cross marking and promotion capabilities. Outdoor Power Sports is a basically two individuals that have gone together on this. Clint Stoffels is the manager and does really good with it. Kevin Palma has a really strong background in finances to grow this dealership. We have the same customer base. We have been introduced to Polaris because of this. They are in the process of putting us on their national website. They promote throughout the United States. Customers can get on the website and rent for CBR throughout the world and show up on our front door. Through this partnership with Outdoor Power Sport, we wouldn’t have the opportunity with Polaris; it’s with their strong drive. We are the only location in the Central US that they will be working with. That leads us to a lot more opportunities to have bigger and better things. He has sold his restaurant and house so he could focus on this entirely. He has always been the majority owner so that won’t change. Outdoor Powersports is only purchasing the other two’s owner rights. They will contribute additional cash to Midground for the purposes of constructing of a gate, constructing restroom and shower facilities, completing the construction of recreational vehicle housing facilities, completing the construction of a road running throughout the property, and for working capital to bolster the available operating cash of Midground. Attorney Mark asked if there was anything in his contract so they couldn’t get rid of him. Justin Ramsey’s Attorney, Justin Landgraf, said Outdoor Powersports can’t associate in any shape, form, or fashion or has any desire to kick Mr. Ramsey out. They are going to invest around $200,000 capital on top of the purchase to make these things immediately. The contract with the City will not change. He makes all the decisions and we made sure that they couldn’t make any without his involvement. Those are the things we put in place as safety measures for him and they understand that. He does have a contract with Outdoor Powersports and there isn’t a term, it’s perpetual. Stan asked if Mr. Pletcher having the 10 acres he has, if he has worked out a deal on his property. Mr. Ramsey said he still has his property and it has nothing to do with this organization. He will continue to maintain his property just like everyone else that has some out there. Tom asked Mr. Ramsey if any of his trails cross others properties. He said no, there is a spot on the north corner known as the Blue Trail entrance and when they started the trail, they put the entrance on the north side of gate post instead of the south side of the gate post, the gate post is the center stone so the 6 foot spot where they cut through but they actually started closing that off and rerouting the front. McCurtain asked if they could get a copy of his contract with Outdoor Powersports to make sure it doesn’t interfere or conflict with ours. Mr. Landgraf said that if you want it, that’s fine but he would recommend Mr. Ramsey that there is pertinent things in it, like financial terms and so forth. They are not hiding anything in it. Mark said he does think it’s prudent to view the contract at this time. Mark asked him how long it would take to get a copy of the contract. Mr. Ramsey said tomorrow, they are just waiting on Council’s approval. Mark told Council they could go ahead and vote on this but with his approval of the contract.
6. Consideration and possible action to approve Professor at East Central University, Kevin Blackwood, on proposal in regards to students doing research out at Turner Falls Park to minimize impact of flood and help divert water. Oakley made motion to approve. Second by Jones. Vote: Davis, yes, McCurtain, yes, Jones, yes, Oakley, yes, Parks, yes. Kevin Blackwood presented Council research to minimize the impact of flooding and help direct water using drones. He will start before the end of September before the set the flood gates in place for winter. This will not cost the City anything. Council asked if they could do it at the falls where the hydraulics is making people get stuck. Mr. Blackwood said they could do something for that as well. Tom said what we are doing works pretty well unless you don’t want to abide by the rules. Darryl asked if they could approve MOU tonight since they are wanting to do their research before they set the flood gates and that will be before next Council. They decided to amend it on Item #10, New Business since they already made a motion on this.
7. Turner Falls Report by Billy Standifer. We were down a little in the month of August. We are looking at starting winter projects to do this year.
