It was noted that the applicant requests a Conditional Use Permit to allow for on-site consumption of beer and alcohol within a new commercial establishment (Shawnee Wings LLC) located within the Shawnee Mall complex. Allowing for the commercial enterprise to serve alcohol at this site is consistent with other conditional use permits that have been approved for restaurants throughout the City and within close proximity of the subject site. The Planning Commission recommended approval of this request. No persons appeared and the public hearing was closed.
A motion was made by Commissioner Sims, seconded by Commissioner Collier, to approve the rezoning of property located at 4901 N. Kickapoo Suite 6705.

Mr. Brian Mahaffey, the applicant, is requesting the C-3, noting that the subject property will facilitate expansion of the existing MacArthur Storage facility.
The Planning Commission recommended approval of the request to rezone property located at 39202 W. MacArthur from RE: Rural Estates to C-3; Automotive, Commercial and Recreation.

AGENDA ITEM NO. 9: Consider approval of preliminary and final plats for Timbers East located south of MacArthur and west of North Leo Streets.
(Applicant: Legacy Engineering)
The Timbers was approved by the City Commission in 1993 and in 2007 portions of the original plat were mistakenly vacated. The applicant is requesting preliminary and final plat approval for 73 residential lots previously vacated.

AGENDA ITEM NO. 14: New Business (Any matter not known about or which could not have been reasonably foreseen prior to the posting of the agenda)
There was no New Business.
AGENDA ITEM NO. 15: Administrative Reports
Interim Finance Director Stephen Nolen updated Commissioners regarding staffs’ recent budget meeting. Mr. Nolen stated that department heads met recently to review their maintenance and operations budgets and discuss where potential cuts could be made. Staff has identified approximately $500,000 of savings. Budgeted capital projects can also be prioritized or postponed if warranted.
City Manager Brian McDougal informed the Commission that no cuts have been ordered at this time and the processing of budget amendments regarding those cuts is premature. He further stated that staff would meet again after this month’s sales tax report comes in to determine future action.
Police Chief Russell Frantz informed Commissioners that he was looking into a potential savings in jail costs. Chief Frantz has been examining the costs involved with purchasing equipment that would allow officers to take mug shots and finger print suspects. They would then be released from custody with a promise to appear. This would negate the need to take the suspects to the Pottawatomie County Safety Center for processing and would save on expenses to the City. This method would be used for crimes such as shoplifting and driving under suspension and would not be used in felony arrests.
Utility Director Jim Bierd stated that all paperwork needed for the replacement of the water line has been turned in to DEQ. He further reported that crews were replacing the altitude valve on the water tower at Park and Federal streets.
Assistant Airport Manager Rex Hennen reported that Air Flite, Inc. would like to lease the Jet Works hangar. On December 16, 2009 the Airport Advisory Board will consider a proposed lease to Air Flite, Inc. and will have a recommendation to the City Commission in January.
Community Development Director Justin Erickson spoke regarding the status of the Regional Park. He stated that the committee would be interviewing firms this week and would choose one to develop a Master Regional Park Plan. Once selected, he expects the firm to take 90 days to complete the plan. Commissioners Harrod, Holt and Sims are members of the committee that will conduct the interviews. A contract with the selected firm will be presented for commission consideration in January, 2010.
City Engineer John Krywicki reported on the status of the right-of-way acquisition of Kickapoo Street property. He stated that at this time there are 17 parcels of property that have been referred to city attorney John Canavan to secure rights-of-way. Mr. Canavan can continue to pursue settlement offers with property owners or can begin the legal process of condemnation.
Mr. Krywicki also reported on the Airport Trails Project. Right-of-way was donated by St. Gregory’s University and Oklahoma Department of Transportation has approved. He stated that bids would be let after the first of the year.
AGENDA ITEM NO. 16: Consider an Executive Session to discuss City Manager’s evaluation pursuant to 25 O. S. §307 (B) (1) on advice of counsel.
A motion was made by Commissioner Sims, seconded by Commissioner Winterringer, to enter into Executive Session to discuss City Manager’s evaluation pursuant to 25 O. S. §307 (B) (1) on advice of counsel. Motion carried 6-0.
CITY COMMISSIONERS NOW ENTER INTO EXECUTIVE SESSION AT 7:35 P.M. WITH ALL COMMISSIONERS PRESENT

AGENDA ITEM NO. 17: Consider matters discussed in Executive Session regarding City Manager’s evaluation pursuant to 25 O. S. §307 (B) (1) on advice of counsel.
Mayor Peterson stated that matters discussed in Executive Session included the progress the City Manager Brian McDougal has made. She stated that the Commissions’ list of items they wished to see progress when Mr. McDougal was hired was the issue of water and water infrastructure. This has been addressed by the City Manager and staff. Also included on the list was the Regional Park, which is moving forward. Commissioners would also like to see decisions made regarding the city staff’s organizational chart, but the economy has not allowed that to occur. She further reported that she feels that the short term fiscal management of the budget is going well. She noted Mr. McDougal has empowered city staff to run their own departments, while staying informed on issues effecting the various city departments.
Commissioner Holt stated he had received good feedback from citizens on the job being done by Mr. McDougal.
Commissioners Sims and Winterringer both concurred that Mr. McDougal is doing a good job.
