The Collinsville City Commission (& Municipal Authoriy) met Monday, Feb. 2nd at 7pm with the Mayor and all commissioners present.

The Collinsville Municipal Authority approved the consent agenda. Collinsville Downtown, Inc., supplied their December activities in a report letter for the CMA. City Engineer Robert Carr recommended and the CMA approved the $11,066.67 payment to Ram Engineering for CDBG Sewer Line Rehabilitation.

City Manager Mike Tinker, in his report, covered the following topics:
* Regional Water District Feasibility group (Collinsville, Owasso, and some of the rural water districts) has selected Benham Engineering to conduct the study.
* City Attorney to draw up a lease for the model airplane club (Sky Blazers Club) for continued use of the city property north of town.
* City crews did a good job sanding streets during the recent snow and ice.
* ODOT says the intersection improvement project at 5th and Main will be in the April bid list.
* Governor Henry will speak at Skiatook's Chamber Banquet March 4th

On the city commission agenda, Middle School Principal Kelly Hamlin presented information on the Feb. 24th school bond election. The City Commission then approved a resolution in support of the school bond proposal. The $4.1 million bond will not raise local property taxes, but will allow improvements at multiple campuses.

Mrs. Hamlin described the new building (above) proposed to expand and upgrade the middle school campus. The single story building will allow natural light into the new classrooms and seat 500 in the commons area (cafeteria). The old cafeteria, media center, and the annex building will be replaced. New classrooms at the high school and improvements at each gymnasium are also included.

The proper name for the city street east of the cemetery was again discussed. Following city numbering the street would be 27th St. West. The street connects the Stonegate Estates addition to Broadway west of the High School entrance (which is also not marked with a street number). The street numbering within Stonegate uses the 911 (emergency) numbering system including 106, 107 and 108th E. Ave. The commission agreed to let the planning commission take a look at this issue before the commission acted.

In executive session, the City Clerk's performance review as well as grievance and arbitration issues were topics to discuss but no action was taken following return to open session.
