OKLAHOMANS PROJECTED TO BENEFIT
ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
more than 24 months
Putting in new water lines to replace existing water lines that are more than 70 years old. The lines are constantly being repaired and flushed. Would like to make the upgrades to be able to handle the flow that it needs to be at. The city has limited funds and employees to go out and fix these problems and has to pay overtime out of reserves which is increasingly causing the city financial problems.
The city employees are constantly being called out to flush water lines and repairs. They have only been able to fix minor repairs when needed due lack of funding and employees, the major repairs are going untouched or being mitigated through "band-aiding".
The community of Wynnewood has been negatively affected from both the pandemic and the loss of oilfield jobs. The median household income is below the poverty level therefore the loss of jobs and revenue don't allow the city to increase the sales tax or utility bills to help cover the cost of any major repairs needed.
The engineers and contractors will be required to provide a project timeline with milestones updates once a month and submit any variance from the original project scope to council. In addition, the city clerk will provide quarterly updates to the US Treasury.
