The Collinsville City
Commission met Monday, Jan. 19th at 7pm
with Mayor Sirmon and only two commissioners present. Commissioners Overholt
& Sallee were absent.
City Commissioners Pam
Porter and Gail Rogers took turns making the motions and seconding for each
other as they and the Mayor moved quickly thru the CMA and City Commission
agendas. The topics taking the most time were reading of information from
a preliminary plat and a plan by the city planner. I missed the first few
minutes of the CMA agenda and do not yet know the results of the vote on the
$1500 installment payment for Collinsville Downtown, Inc.
City Manager Mike Tinker
reported a new conceptual plan for the fire station was now available and
under review by the Fire Chief and EMS Director. This is seperable from the
City Hall building which is being slowed by lack of a new plan after switching
architects. Bids have not yet been requested for the cleanout / stabalization
of City Hall pending that plan. Tinker indicated Vision 2025 funds were in
place now for Collinsville to submit claims against to the county ($2.1 million
for City Hall and $227K for downtown beautification) with a 36 month clock
The Commissioners approved
two funds transfers ($30K from sales tax reserves to the general fund and
$15K from sales tax reserves to 1999 Sales Tax Fund for bond and interest
payments) as recommended by Jim Rush.
Also approved was Resolution
2004-01 accepting a beneficial interest in the Metropolitan Environmental
Trust on behalf of the City of Collinsville. One reason cited by Mike Tinker
was to comply with the DEQ
consent order the city is under due to spikes in pollutants last year.
The city will now be able to take full advantage of the MET's yearly collection
of household pollutants at the Fairgrounds in Tulsa. Collinsville will now
be a member of the organization and pay dues.
The city entered into
an agreement with INCOG to take advantage of a $5635 grant for a required
multi-hazard mitigation plan. INCOG will create the plan. The State of Oklahoma
supplied the grant.
A preliminary plat for
Cooper Crossing (near Highways 75 & 20) and site plan for Victory Energy
Operations, LLC were presented by City Planner, Erik Enyart. The Victory Energy
plan is for a manufacturing facility on property located on the north side
of 126th St. N. roughly ¼ mile west of Garnett Rd (former Collinsville
Industrial Park). No commission action was taken or required.
Erik Enyart also discussed
the proper name for the street just east of Ridgelawn Cemetery (leading to
Stonegate) which apparently has no signage and the correct street number is
uncertain. If Collinsville numbering were used it would likely be 27th Street
West. It was decided to check further to determine if Tulsa or 911 numbering
would meet other needs. The street is apparently not even on the 911 emergency
