Council calls special meeting for emergency drought relief

September 24, 2013

The Altus City Council will meet in special meeting at 5:30 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 25.

The meeting will be to consider and discuss Resolution 2013-41, authorizing an application to the State of Oklahoma for Emergency Drought Relief Funds, pursuant to Title 27A O.S.A., Sections 2250-2252.

During last week’s City Council regular meeting, Councilman Michael Beason reported to be currently working on an Emergency Drought Relief Fund application with the help of the City Treasurer’s Office and Councilman Dwayne Martin to apply for state funding.

If the Resolution passes, the application will be sent to the Governor.
