Today’s podcast is focused on Monday evening’s Ardmore City Commission meeting, which could see approval of an $8.2 million wastewater treatment facility at the Ardmore Municipal Airport, according to Monday’s agenda. The commission is also expected to vote on rezoning efforts near Springdale Road and Mary Niblack Road, and could approve a settlement with the owners of two partially-collapsed downtown buildings in an effort to save them.
The Carter County Commission had an extremely light meeting on Monday morning that included some housekeeping on a bridge project over Walnut Bayou in District 3. The commission meeting lasted less than 15 minutes and saw all items approved.
Turnout for early voting in local elections was expectedly light. Carter County Election Board Secretary Diane Hall on Monday said 45 ballots were cast between Thursday and Friday of last week. So far, only nine of the 24 requested absentee ballots have been returned to her office. Absentee ballots, also know as mail-in ballots, must be received at the election board by 7 p.m. on Tuesday. Local polling precincts will be open on Tuesday between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
A few events coming up later this month may be of interest to some:
- A hazardous waste drop-off will be available to Ardmore residents on Saturday, April 15;
- a public meeting regarding Ardmore trails will be on Tuesday, April 18;
- a health fair will be held at HFV Wilson Community Center on April 18.
No podcast tomorrow since physical therapy starts on my leg, but I’ll be back Wednesday with more local news and talk.
