Arthur Shipley, 4829 NW Floyd Avenue, stated he was confused over the new trash containers.
He stated he had a cardboard box lying next to his trash containers. He called and was told
was not in the can, they will not pick it up. He questioned what happens to the trash that they
cannot get into the can. Is the property owner responsible? If he has to take it to the
would prefer to take all of his trash. He stated he was told he would still have to pay for the
up whether he uses it or not.
Mitchell stated the City Council recently expanded the clean up periods to one every
Mr. Shipley stated they either have to leave things laying there until the clean
up or take it to the
landfill. He stated if he has to go to the landfill, why doesn t he just take all of his
the city will still charge him.
Mitchell stated yes. He has that choice.
Mr. Shipley stated the residents really need clarification. He stated this
is not working and
something has to be done. He does understand that residents can buy an additional trash can for

Catherine Bernal. AYE: Jackson, Patton, Haywood, Warren, Shoemate, Givens, Drewry. NAY:
None. MOTION CARRIED.
Givens stated Ms. Caro is here to answer questions. She sent a letter to all
of the City
Councilors. He stated it appears that the fault lay in the reconnection or no connection of her
sewer line to the main sewer.
MOVED by Givens, SECOND by Shoemate, to adopt Resolution No. 06-196 approving the
claim of Marie Caro in the amount of $880.10.
Vincent stated he has not seen the letter from Ms. Caro. He stated it was the
failure to connect,
but the reason this claim was recommended for denial was because of the period of time from
when the line was installed and over two years later when she first notified the city that there was
a problem. The statute of limitations has definitely run. He stated in talking with her
he alludes to the fact that if this had been reported in time, the total damages would have been
$580.10. He stated if they are going to recommend payment, that is really the most we can pay.
Givens stated he does not have her plumber s letter and that was not included
in the information
they received from Ms. Caro.
Vincent stated that staff spoke with her plumber on the telephone and he alluded
remainder of the service line did not need to be replaced, but was replaced at her request. The
only thing that needed to be replaced was the connection at the sewer main which was $580.10.
The other $300 is for the remainder of the service line.
Givens stated she claims that she has a receipt for the plumbers work in the amount
which was charged to her credit card, plus $240 in checks that she paid the plumbers.
Vincent stated the amount of her claim is itemized in the claim report. He
stated that $300 was
for replacement of the service line that did not need to be replaced.
Givens stated she replaced that line because she thought it was the problem. She
was told that
the problem was in her service line.
Vincent stated that was done over two years ago and even if we would have used a
contractor, his warranty would have elapsed before the city was notified of this problem.
Givens stated she had the problem in 2005 and she was trying to take care of it herself
time that it got out of hand.
Vincent stated the most staff can recommend is $580.10.

Warren. MOTION CARRIED.

th Street and 9th Street. Exhibits: Fifty (50) Year Lease
Mitchell stated that items #18 and #19 go hand in hand. One is the financing
and one is the
lease. A revised lease agreement was distributed to the City Council. Corrections
typographical errors were made late that afternoon. He stated the purpose of this lease agreement
would be to transfer the old Lawton High property to the City of Lawton at the conclusion of
Phase I. Item #19 talks about base bid and Phase I of the project to renovate the high school.
The citizens of Lawton approved $3 million for the project in the 2005 CIP program. McMahon
Foundation granted $3 million dollars to Lawton Public Schools. We received $600,000.00 from
the State Centennial Commission. Lawton Public School have spent approximately $1.5 million
to date on the renovation project.
Chuck Wade, attorney for Lawton Public Schools, stated prior to this point the school
put on a new roof, tack pointed all of the brick and demolished the yellow buildings, the cafeteria
and the gymnasium on the NE corner at a cost of $1.5 million. The school board and
administration feel that this lease is in the best interest of all parties. Under the 50 year lease
purchase agreement the school district is asking to have the right to use the auditorium for school
board meetings and the use of the conference center.
Givens questioned the scheduling of the facilities. He wants to make sure that
the scheduling is
clear and that the scheduler would get annual dates from the school board and the City Council
so that no one would get bumped.
Mr. Wade stated it will be a clear scheduling issue so that other entities will be
able to use the
facility. The City Council and the school board will have the priority as to their regular and
MOVED by Givens, SECOND by Warren, to enter into a Fifty (50) Year Lease Purchase
Agreement between the Board of Education, Independent School District No. 8, Comanche

19. Consider approving a supplemental appropriation of $400,000
for the purposes of providing
the required matching funds to the Lawton Public Schools for Phase I of the Historic Lawton
High Renovation (Project # 601E22).
Mitchell stated Lawton Public Schools opened bid proposals for Phase I base bid on
and approved that base bid on November 13
th at their meeting. Contingent upon the City of
Lawton and the McMahon Foundation providing some additional revenue to fund the base bid
for this project. The McMahon board met the following day and agreed to provide an additional
$600,000 contingent upon the city providing the last 10% of the project, or about $400,000.
Staff is recommending that the City Council designate $400,000 out of the 2005 CIP program, in
which $3 million was set aside for this renovation project. That money will be repaid to the CIP
once the project is completed at the Museum at the Great Plains. He stated they are actually just
borrowing money from ourselves and repaying that money at the conclusion of another project.
The Reserve Fund #15 is the amount of money that the City Council earmarked to match grants
and use as cash flow.
Mayor Purcell stated they owe a great deal of gratitude to the McMahon Foundation. Once again
they have stepped forward with an additional $600,000.
Warren stated he would like to see each City Councilor call the legislators at the
state level and
ask them for some funding because this project is not finished by any means and they need more
Mayor Purcell stated all of the local legislators are supportive of this, and they
are trying to get a
supplemental off the 2007 budget to increase the $600,000 we received from the centennial fund.
MOVED by Warren, SECOND by Haywood, to approve a supplemental appropriation of
$400,000 for the purpose of providing the required matching funds to the Lawton Public Schools
for Phase I of the Historic Lawton High Renovation (Project # 601E22) and reimburse the 2005
CIP account from Reserve Fund #015 upon the completion of the ODOT Intermodal

Mr. Mitchell questioned when they planned to issue the notice to proceed.
Mr. Wade stated he is assuming it will be on the 12
17. Hold a public hearing and consider a resolution amending
the 2025 Land Use Plan from
Professional Office and Residential/Low Density to Commercial and an ordinance changing the
zoning from R-1 (Single-Family Dwelling District) to C-1 (Local Commercial District) zoning
classification on property located at 3402, 3408, 3428 NW Cache Road and 3401 3435 NW
Oak Avenue. Exhibits: Resolution 06-___, Ordinance 06-___, Location Map and CPC Minutes.
Richard Rogalski, Planning Director, stated this request is for Lots 1, 2, and 5
- 10, Block 7,
Greer Addition, Plat No. 2. The City Council approved rezoning Lots 3 and 4 to C-1 on July 11,
2006, and directed Staff to process an administrative rezoning for the remainder of Block 7.
The zoning of the surrounding area is R-1 to the north and south, C-5 (General Commercial
District) and R-4 (High Density Apartment District) to the east, and C-5 to the west across NW
th Street. The land use of the surrounding area is single-family residential to the
south, commercial (convenience store) and apartments to the east, and commercial (IHOP and
Kmart) to the west. The current land use of these lots is single-family residential.
On October 26, 2006 the City Planning Commission held a public hearing on this request.
the public hearing three persons spoke in favor of the request, and two persons did not object but
had concerns. The CPC, by a vote of 5 to 1, recommended approval of the request to the City
Drewry questioned if the new zoning classification staff was working on would be
ideal for this
Rogalski stated this would be an area that they would have looked at as being transitional.
look back at the land use plan the whole north section is PO. When PO was created it was
intended as a buffer between residential and commercial, but it really didn t work out. The
weren t open enough for it to be profitable. The point of the transitional zone (TR) is
additional uses with also providing additional protection.
Shoemate questioned if C-1 would allow bars to go in.
Rogalski stated no bars, an eating establish could go in and sell alcohol. A
traditional bar would
need C-5 zoning. The C-1 zoning is actually called neighborhood commercial.
Givens questioned if, under the current zoning regulations, is there any way to enforce
north side of Oak would be developed.
Rogalski state no, other than traffic concerns.
Givens stated under the new transition zoning, it will be subject to a site plan
Rogalski stated under the transitional, the zoning doesn t exist until a developer
presents a site
plan that shows what the developer wants to do on that property.
PUBLIC HEARING OPENED.
Harold Vincent, 3402 Cache Road, stated the map that is being displayed is wrong. He stated
there are actually nine lots on the north side of Oak. On the south side of Oak there are about
lots. He stated there are about 20 property owners who haven t sold. He and
his wife are 81
and they don t plan on selling, but they don t want to pay taxes as a business property
they are residential. He stated he heard Mr. Shoemate say last month that since this property
being zoned business, they ought to charge taxes as a zoned business. He agreed that the
property is worth more money, but not until it has a business on it.
Shoemate stated he did not make that statement.
Haywood questioned if they do have to pay taxes as a commercial property.
Drewry stated she found out that they do and she disagrees with that.
Warren stated it is up to the Comanche County Assessor whether they charge a different
not. If they do, they can take it up with the assessor as far as having it adjusted. He
stated it then
goes to the Board of Equalization.
PUBLIC HEARING CLOSED.
Givens stated he does not see how we can just inch into this mess. If they
do this, then what are
the people on the south side of Oak going to do? Where do you stop this mess? In order to
this, a developer needs to go in there, get the property and then the Council designates that area
transitional zoning and then we can require that the north side of Oak become a massive green
zone that blocks the commercial property from the rest of that residential neighborhood.
Patton stated for someone to come in and have a site plan for that whole development
would be a
substantial amount of money. Businesses want to be off of Cache Road and he thinks everyone
would agree that at least the first block off of Cache Road will eventually be businesses at some
point. When they looked at rezoning that first block south of Cache Road, the residents did not
want to back up to commercial property, so they wanted the whole thing to go commercial. That
is why this whole section is here for rezoning.
Givens questioned what will happen to those residents on the south side of Oak?
Drewry stated staff is working on a transitional zoning that would be more effective
backs up to residential. She feels that they are not ready to do this and they need to wait until
that transitional zoning is in place and take another look at this.
Mayor Purcell questioned if there was not already a requirement regarding commercial
next to residential property.
Givens stated 6 foot of opaque screening is the current requirement.
Mayor Purcell stated that does not solve the problem.
Warren stated the block off of Cache Road is too valuable to be zoned office. The
zoning, in his opinion, should be the south side of Oak and the north side of Kinyon.
Givens questioned what those residents are going to do.
Warren stated he knows the screening is not going to be enough, but it is not going
to be a thirty
Givens stated it this was transitional zoning, we could make requirements on a developer
protect the other people in that residential area. He does not understand why the residents on
south side of Oak are not down here.
Patton questioned where this transition zoning should be most applicable.
Givens stated the north side of Oak.
MOVED by Warren, SECOND by Jackson, to adopt Resolution 06-199 and Ordinance 06-89,
waive the reading of the ordinance, read the title only. AYE: Warren, Jackson. NAY: Shoemate,
Givens, Drewry, Patton, Haywood. MOTION FAILED.
20. Consider approving a recommendation to officially dedicate
SW Garfield Avenue from 11
Street to Sheridan Road in the name of Dr. Charles W. Whitlow by placing additional signs
directly below each sign in this area to reflect the dedication to Dr. Charles W. Whitlow.
Exhibits: Letter from Union Baptist Church and Biography of Charles W. Whitlow.
Haywood stated he brought the Holy Bible with him tonight in case he needed it. The
he does in the morning is pray for his family, elected officials, City of Lawton and Lawton Public
School employees. He stated he has talked with some individuals and he would like to make the
MOVED by Haywood, SECOND by Patton, to officially rename SW Garfield Avenue from 11th
Street to Sheridan Road to Dr. Charles W. Whitlow Avenue.
Mayor Purcell clarified that this is different from what is recommended.
Jackson stated he thinks that the Parks and Recreation Commission should be asked
a policy regarding naming of streets. He thinks we are getting into a severe problem of
mismatching streets for people and he has a real concern. He may live on that street and not
want his address changed. He has heard from one resident in that area who does want her street
name changed. He personally likes the idea of naming the street in memory of, but
him to actually change the name of the street and the address of a citizen that lives in that area.
Mitchell stated it is a real important issue to develop a policy so that we don
t get into a position
of changing the name of a street for one or two blocks and then moving back to another street
name and having a lot of confusion. He stated whether they approve this request or not, he
thinks in the future they need to look at developing such a policy.
Givens stated this is not one or two blocks, it is from 11
th Street to Sheridan Road.
Haywood stated it is one mile.
Givens stated if they can figure out the streets in Mission Village and some of the
he does not know why this would present a problem.
Jackson stated there are people that live on that street that don t want it
Shoemate stated Dr. Whitlow has done a lot for this community and it would be a good
Warren stated he does not have a problem doing this today, but in the future he would
like to see
them do street dedications with a historical marker. This would be a lot easier and would solve
those problems. The dedication actually brings more attention than just changing the name of the
VOTE ON THE MOTION: AYE: Haywood, Warren, Shoemate, Givens, Drewry, Jackson,
Patton. NAY: None. MOTION CARRIED.
21. Consider approving and authorizing a utility account adjustment
to the KCA Land Use
Committee due to an undetectable, underground leak on their water line for the Fort Sill Indian
School Campus in the amount of $2,069.52. Exhibits: Letter dated 10/19/06 from KCA
requesting account adjustment for leak, Notarized statement dated 10/17/06 from KCA
Maintenance Supervisor verifying leak was repaired, Documentation evidencing repair expenses,
Copy of September 29
th bill and check for payment of bill and City Code Section 22-1-215.
Rick Endicott, Finance Director, stated at the last meeting the City Council passed
that only residential property owners would be able to apply for this kind of adjustment. This
particular claim was in the works when the ordinance was passed, so that is why it is on the
agenda. The claimant used 674,000 gallons for that particular month, and they came in and
showed staff proof that the leak was fixed. The average use is around 97,000 gallons. He
staff is recommending the adjustment in the amount of $2,069.52.
MOVED by Shoemate, SECOND by Warren, to approve and authorize a utility account
adjustment to the KCA Land Use Committee due to an undetectable, underground leak on their
water line for the Fort Sill Indian School Campus in the amount of $2,069.52. AYE: Warren,
Shoemate, Givens, Drewry, Jackson, Patton, Haywood. NAY: None. MOTION CARRIED.
REPORTS: MAYOR/CITY COUNCIL/CITY MANAGER
Jackson stated he is concerned about the crime spree happening in Lawton. He
the Police Chief come to the next council meeting with an overall plan he may have to address
this problem. If he needs more officers on the street let s get it done. He stated
scared and they need to get something done.
Haywood stated if they could come up with some after school programs they could get
these kids off the streets. If they could encourage those students to stay after school and work
with the teachers, it does change their attitude. They are doing the best they can.
Warren stated that we have got problems with gangs and not talking about it is not
going to get
us there. The police are just trying to keep their head above water. They need more officers
more overtime hours. He wished that each councilmember would ride along with a police officer
on a Saturday night just to see what happens out there. He stated the gang task force puts on
program and he would like to have a special meeting and see this program to give everyone a
little glimpse at what is going on.
Chief Smith stated they have increased the gang task force to six officers. They
have a no
tolerance policy with gang members. He stated they even have crime stopper officers
on cases, that is how stretched they are. He stated some of his guys have worked 128 hours
overtime in a four week period.
Haywood questioned how many gangs there were.
Chief Smith stated at last count there were 111 different affiliations. He
stated they have a good
presentation if they would like to see what the gangs are all about and what they are doing.
Mayor Purcell stated we can call a special meeting if the majority of the council
interested in seeing this presentation.
Chief Smith stated the presentation will take about 2 hours.
Everyone agreed to schedule the meeting after the first of the year.
Patton stated they should do it as a workshop and invite the media.
Warren stated there used to be a gang task force, that eventually went away. He
stated this is not
just a law enforcement issue, this is a community, church, school and neighborhood issue. He
feels this should be a city wide meeting and get as many people here as they can.
Mayor Purcell stated that may be two issues. They need a special council meeting
so they know
what is going on and then there needs to be a forum for the public.
Shoemate announced that McArthur High School will be in the state finals on Saturday
Mayor Purcell stated he has talked with the City Manager about setting up a meeting
police chief, with one of the District judges, the Municipal Court Judge and the District Attorney
to talk about the arresting procedures with the gang members. He stated they also need some
legislation to help with this.
Mayor Purcell stated he sent a letter to the Governor asking for a meeting along
legislative delegation to talk about funding needs with the BRAC issue.
Haywood stated he would like to thank Assistant City Attorney Scott Meadors for the
job he is
doing in District Court with dilapidations in Ward 7.
Mitchell reminded the City Council of the state water conference scheduled for Thursday,
th in Oklahoma City and a breakfast on Friday morning with J.R.Reskovec, our
