Big Council meeting tonight

| | Comments (1)

There are a lot of important issues on tonight's Tulsa City Council agenda.

  • The Mayor has nominated a replacement for planning commission member Dell Coutant (the only member that has respect for the Comprehensive Plan). His name is Owen Ard, and I understand that he lives in Maple Ridge neighborhood and is in real estate. Once again, the Mayor appears to be bowing to his Cockroach Caucus masters by NOT replacing the commissioner who most needs to go -- Joe Westervelt. That must have been some woodshedding they gave Bill out at Homebuilders' Hall.
  • Former District 7 City Councilor Terry Doverspike has been nominated to the Economic Development Commission to replace Jono Helmerich. While Doverspike may not be the Chamber booster that his predecessor on the Council, John Benjamin (now a Bixby resident), was, Doverspike is not likely to be the kind of skeptical outsider we need to oversee the spending of Tulsa's economic development money.
  • An item about allowing the Council to handle appeals from the City Board of Adjustment.
  • An attempt to put off the charter amendment and the city bond issue until May.

And there's more. It all starts at 6 p.m. tonight at City Hall.

I happen to know Owen Ard. He goes by "Chip", and he is a real estate appraiser, with the firm Gray, Lawrence, Ard.

Keep up your great work, and bust the Cockroach Caucus, if at all possible.
