Lawton City Council approves 2016 CIP

LAWTON, Okla._The Lawton City Council approved a proposal to set an election in August for a new capital improvements package, aimed primarily at funding projects connected to water.

The proposal would raise $100 million over the next ten years. It would also include the unfinished street and sewer projects from the 2012 CIPs. Again, voters will get the final say at the polls.

The council rejected two requests to increase fees that would have been added to the water bill. One would have funded a new position in the storm water division. The other would have funded a maintenance crew that works on drainage projects throughout the city.
