City Commission / CMA Meeting Index

The Collinsville City Commission met Monday, Nov. 6th at 7pm (at the City Hall Community Room, 106 N 12th Street) for a regular meeting of the City Commission and Municipal Authority.

Ted Note: I have just sumarized the CMA agenda but have a complete commission agenda below.

====== Collinsville Municipal Authority (Agenda): =====

Trustees Pam Porter, Melodie Bateman, James Rigdon & Stan Sallee were present. Trustee Trent Rogers was absent.

* Swearing in of James Rigdon as Ward IV commissioner / trustee (on commission agenda).

* Discussion and possible action concerning final plans and specification for wastewater plant expansion. -- Jay Updike presented information on the on-going efforts to improve Collinsville waste water plant to meet the DEQ consent order. A disc filter system has been demonstrated twice on the Collinsville system which would be one of the first approved by the DEQ for a system this size. The appllication process continues for a project with a $1.3 million project which is projected to cover growth for about 15 years.

* Presentation of proposal for State Highway 20 corridor wastewater study.
Updike followed up on individual (per household) grinder pump stations that had been presented to the comprehensive plan steering committee July 27th. The systems are expected to be cheaper than gravity systems alone. Bartlesville has studied the same system and expects to use it for the strip of land conecting to the Wal-Mart Distribution Center. Muskogee already uses the system.
