7. Discussion, consideration and possible action to approve Resolution Number 2014-14, a Resolution of the City Commission of the City of Collinsville, Oklahoma adopting an updated Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan for the City of Collinsville, Oklahoma. -- Approved (again) ... after a few minor revisions applied during FEMA's approval cycle.
8. Discussion, consideration and possible action to approve Resolution Number 2014-15, a Resolution signifying the City Commissions support of the Tulsa Regional Chamber 2015 OneVoice Regional Legislative Agenda initiative establishing state and federal legislative priorities concerning items of mutual municipal interest. -- Tabled to allow Collinsville schools to review also ... as one of the alternative city funding sources might be property taxes. Cities are limited to sales taxes (which go down in recessions) and use taxes (which are under reported and collected). Commissioner Garret moved that the item be tabled and Commissioner Shafer provided the 2nd. Commissioner Francis voted no on the motion to table.
9. First reading of Ordinance Number 879. -- Items 9-10-11 are a redo from the last commission meeting when the same rezoning (of 123 N. 14th) was approved but lacked the agenda wording for an "emergency". After a lengthy discussion concerning the "appropriate" declaring of an emergency per city city charter and state laws and supreme court rulings cited by City Attorney Ken Underwood and questions from Commissioner Garrett and Mayor Bud York, this commission approved a motion to waive the first reading by a 3-0 vote. That cleared the way to expedite the following item 10 by making it effective immediately (if approved unnamiously) without delays for publication and a later vote. But before item 10 was addressed, Commissioner Garrett excused himself from the proceedings and left the building. This made consideration of item 10 impossible this evening so it was reverted to the effect of a first reading and requiring legal publication and at least a week delay for a vote.
Discussion, consideration and possible action to approve Ordinance
Number 879, an Ordinance amending Ordinance Number 606, the Zoning
Code of the City of Collinsville, Oklahoma, by approving CZ-186, repealing
all Ordinances in conflict herewith; and declaring an emergency.

Ted Wright Editorial
(relating to item 9)
|I'm not sure I can
give Commissioner Garrett any "style points" but it is refreshing
to see just about everything "questioned" that has appeared
to be taken for granted in recent years by the city commission. Especially
two of my favorite topics: 1) declaring of an emergency (just to expedite
the process) rather than being "actual" emergency. 2) State
Legal Publication Rules -- i.e. posting agendas on a bulletin board that
is rarely seen by the public or in a newspaper (but not a more viewed
web site). -- Ted 10/21/2014
