The Stratford Town Board has moved forward from what was once in extreme disarray, and are now beginning to discuss new issues concerning town organization.
Though there was much discussion at Tuesday night’s meeting, many items on the agenda were tabled until the next meeting.
Items tabled included a town surplus auction, as the Board requires a full detailed list of every item to be auctioned off prior to declaring a date for the auction itself. They hope to have a detailed list at the August meeting.
Also on the agenda was the discussion of a new computer system for Stratford EMS. The EMS employees have been updating the current computer to fit their needs for the past few years, and the Board has decided that purchasing a new one would best fit their needs and be cheaper in the long run.
However, due to lack of information given at the meeting, this item was tabled for further discussion at a later date.
The Stratford Town Board had a lengthy discussion on the possibility of revamping a town ordinance concerning building and repair permit fees.
Board members debated the pros and cons of altering the ordinance, and in the end, under the advisement of the new Town Attorney Phillip Morton, will be discussing the ordinance item by item in another meeting at a later date.
The next Town Board meeting will take place at Oklahoma Heritage Bank on August 11.
