CC)—The Enid Mayor and Board of Commissioners Tuesday night approved a resolution declaring a disaster emergency as well as funding for contracts for cleanup related to the recent ice storm. In other action, commissioners approved condemning a couple of properties for constructing the Kaw Lake Water Pipeline project, and addressed a number of other items. During the meeting Ward 3 Commissioner Ben Ezzell took his fellow commissioners to task for inaction after previously saying they’d consider a local mask mandate if new COVID-19 numbers continued to increase. Garfield County and the rest of the state have recently seen case counts and rates of infection reach their highest points since March. Ezzell said the failure to act by the commission in his opinion is an embarrassment. There were no action items on Tuesday’s agenda related to COVID-19 response.

TL)--City officials say the Service Center Drop Site, located at the 1500 block W. Chestnut, and the South Government Springs Park Drop Site, located at 1202 S. 10th Street, will close to residents on Friday at 5:00 p.m. The closure of the drop sites is due to the lack of usage of the drop sites by residents, and will also allow crews to focus on picking up debris and limbs from residential areas. Residents may continue to dispose of tree limbs and debris for free through November 30th at the City Landfill, located at 1313 East Southgate Road. The operating hours are: Monday-Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Saturdays, 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.; and Sunday 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

 

As a reminder, to prepare for removal of debris and tree limbs, residents are asked to do the following:

  • Stack tree limbs near the curb away from obstructions like fire hydrants, mailboxes, trash cans, and water meters
  • Piles should NOT be below electric power lines or low hanging branches
  • Cut tree limbs and logs into sections 10 feet long or shorter
  • Set debris and limbs in a separate pile from trash waste pickup

 

City officials are asking all residents to be patient during this extensive cleanup project as it will take crews several weeks to remove all debris.

IR)--An estimated 15,000 visitors will enjoy Enid’s first outdoor ice rink throughout this holiday season. As title sponsors, Jiffy Trip and Williams Media Group (My Country 103.1 and Talk 100.9 KGWA) are joining Main Street Enid, the Stride Bank Center and Visit Enid in bringing an outdoor ice rink to downtown Enid. It will be located at 400 S. Independence in the parking lot between the Stride Bank Center and the art installation Under Her Wing was the Universe. Opening Day is November 20 and the rink will be open through January 3.

 

Main Street Enid executive director Natalie Beurlot says they have a contract with Oklahoma City-based Express Ice to install the 75-foot by 45-foot rink. Operating hours will be 3:00 pm-9:00 pm Monday through Thursday, 3:00 pm-11:00 pm Friday, 12:00 pm-11:00 pm Saturday and 12:00 pm-9:00 pm Sunday. Special hours during Thanksgiving break and Christmas break will be announced at a later time. Single day tickets will be $12 for general admission, which includes skate rental. A $60 Season Pass and special group and holiday party rates are also available. Tickets are available through the Stride Bank Center ticket outlets or on site. Stride Bank Center general manager Kevin Boryzcki adds the arena will provide concessions on site.

 

What is missing is the ice rink’s name, and that’s where you come in. Go to the rink’s website, SkateInEnid.com, and submit your best name for consideration. Deadline to enter is Friday, October 9 at 12 noon. Beurlot says sponsorship opportunities are available for business owners wanting to support the downtown ice rink. For more information, contact the Main Street Enid office at 580.234.1052 or visit the new ice rink website, SkateInEnid.com. Look for the ice rink on Facebook and Instagram at SkateInEnid.
