Published on August 7, 2008

Mustang’s fireworks policies will not change this year, after an ordinance requested by Council at its last meeting was defeated in a 5-2 vote.

Council members heard from fireworks proponents Tuesday after hearing from several residents opposed to personal fireworks at their July 15 meeting. At that time, Council passed a measure by a one-vote margin, decreasing the time residents could pop fireworks by two days. At that time, they asked staff to bring an ordinance on that change before them.

Council approves county agreements for road repairs

Mustang City Council entered into two agreements with Canadian County to perform road repairs in the city Tuesday.

Chief building official Mike Rutledge said officials pursued the interlocal agreements after bids received for one project — repairing and resurfacing some streets in the Rancho Addition — came back more than $300,000 over budget.

“We sent this to at least 10 bidders, and we only got two bids back,” Rutledge said. “People are just too busy, or it’s too small of a project for them.”
