The Town of Disney accepted the resignation of their city attorney and established a Flood Plain Board of Directors at the regular board meeting held on Tuesday night at city hall. “We will be interviewing a prospective replacement on Wednesday night but we are thankful for a job well done on behalf of Cherie Meislahn,” said Mayor Judy Barger.

The board approved the resignation effective immediately. The board then approved

establishing a five person board to oversee the Flood Plain Program which the town is going to be participating in.

“The first thing that we need to do is to establish a five-person board who can oversee the program,” said Joan Rodenbush, board member. “Myself, Judy Barger and Jane Standeford are currently on the board and we need two additional volunteers to get things in motion. If we can get that done then we will be in a perfect position to keep moving in the right direction with this.”

Town trustees Jim Risman and local resident Linda Young volunteered to serve on the board. All members were approved. Next on the agenda the board approved the Grand Gateway Economic Development Agency’s annual membership fee from July 1, 2011 through June 30, 2012, at a cost of $250 and 2011- 2012 service fees for the Oklahoma Municipal League in the amount of $456.60.

The board also approved the Emergency Management Service Agreement for Sept.

1, 2011 to Sept. 1, 2012 at a cost of $452. An item calling for the purchase of a used time clock was not approved, with the board opting to purchase a new one for approximately $300.

“The used one is in need of some repairs and a brand new time clock can be purchased for less than the used one and comes with a warranty,” said Sherry Page, town clerk. The Town of Disney will apply for a $50,000 REAP Grant through Grand Gateway Economic Development to be used for the improvement of roadways within the city limits.

The board met in executive session to discuss the evaluation and performance of Larry Sanders, Disney Police Chief. No action was taken. The Disney Town Board of Trustees meets the second Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. in Disney City Hall.
