LAWTON, OK(KSWO)-The Lawton Enhancement Trust Authority, or LETA, recognized businesses and individuals for doing their part to help make Lawton a more attractive city during Friday night’s annual Eye Candy Awards Gala.

They honor those who've invested time and money in landscaping, painting, or decorating their workplaces or homes.  Lawton City Councilman Jay Burk says it's an important element of the city's growth, and those people deserve to be praised for their efforts.

"You forget sometimes what people have done for the community until you sit down and talk about the things they have done.  We have a really nice crowd every year, about 200 people, who come together to celebrate Lawton's history, and Lawton's future," Burk said.

At the gala, officials also unveiled the plans by the new Leadership Lawton Class to restore a non-functioning fountain that's located on the south side of city hall. It was originally donated by the Lawton High School class of 1931.  This project will be totally funded by private donations.
