The Heavener Utilities Authority and City Council approved the 2021-2022 budgets during their Thursday night meetings.
Present were Mayor Max Roberts, along with Council members Joey Clubb, Melinda Ballantine, Marvin Meredith and Jim Roll. Also present were HUA members Jim Carr, Billy Adrean and Jason Tiffee. David Grubbs Sr. was absent.
The HUA was first, as usual, and approved Resolution #2021-009 on the budget for the upcoming fiscal year.
City Manager Cody Smith said the only change was the affect of the Poteau Valley Improvement Authorities’ recent rate hike. Heavener has been getting water from PVIA for the last few months.
The HUA also went through a lengthy executive session for confidential communications with the city attorney concerning Veolia’s DEQ administrative compliance order and a dedicated line to OK Foods.
After reconvening, there was a discussion on the HUA rates before adjourning.
The Council approved the budget and also approved the purchase of a new merry-go-round for Blues Park to replace a broken teeter totter.
They also approved a code violation for property at 105 Lori Lane, owned by Glenna Gaglias for rank weeds and grass.
