from Pamela Friggel with Quik-Trip Corp. -- Friggel was
not present but Ricky Hayes (Retail Attractions, LLC) discussed Quick-Trip's letter
of intent (received mid-November) stating their intent to build a 4600 sq-ft building
at Hwy 75/20 (and 16 gas pumps & kitchen). The facility should be similar
in size to the Quick-Trip at 76th St N. in Owasso. Hayes estimated the facility
might be completed in 8 to 9 months. Hayes stated Quick-Trip would also be building
4 other facilities in the Tulsa area.
Discussion, consideration and possible action to approve plans to expand sanitary
sewer services to the west side of the Citys corporate limits. --
approved proceeding with a $2.5 million option to build a sewer system using a
combination of gravity and a pump station to serve the Highway 20 corridor west
to Highway 75. Jay Updike presented the options and expected the plans in about
90 days and 9-12 months to complete.
Discussion, consideration and possible action authorizing the Baker Group, as
financial advisor and Johanning and Byrom, P.C. as bond council, to prepare and
present financing plans and legal documentation to implement the financing of
the sewer expansion project. -- approved to generate financial
options to present to the City at the Dec. 7th meet. The city's recent A rating
for the bonds for the sales tax improvements is expected to speed the process
for this financing. Low construction cost and interest rates (and potential growth
potential residential/commercial) were cited as making this a good time to take
on the $2.5 million expense.
