Chickasaws May Help Fund Chickasha Street Upgrades
The City of Chickasha may get some help from the Chickasaw Nation to pay for street improvements. The city council tonight will discuss a possible Memorandum of Understanding with the tribe to add the streets to the Tribal Transportation Program of the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Tribal officials may provide funding for upgrades under a separate agreement if money is available. City Manager John Noblitt said the tribe would not be taking the streets into tribal trust and they would not be identified as tribal land. The city would still have to maintain the streets. The council will go behind closed doors to discuss an economic development proposal which could include the transfer of property, financing, or the creation of a proposal to entice a company to remain or locate in the city. The panel will also review an ordinance regarding the city's ban on smoking in public places. The Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust, or TSET, is recommending some changes that could allow the city to be eligible for up to $120,000 in grants. The council meets at 6:30 tonight at city hall.
