Moore recovery continues on strong course

(Continued)

MOORE —

In other city business, the council approved the purchase of 12 Ford Explorer SUV police interceptor vehicles from Bob Moore Ford at the state contract price for $354,000. Eddy said the vehicles will be paid for out of the Public Safety Sales Tax fund.

During public input, residents Leslie Bonebreak and Memory Taylor asked about curbside recycling. The recycling center will reopen in August, but the pair hopes Moore will follow Norman’s lead and bring curbside recycling to residents. Mayor Lewis voiced support but said people spoke against the added cost of recycling a few years back.

Bonebreak and Taylor said they believe there is an interest level for curbside recycling now, and they will rally residents to work toward that end with city leaders.

Aaron Sloan, a Moore resident and full-time member of the Oklahoma Army National Guard with the 45th Infantry Brigade, thanked city council members for Veterans Park.

He talked about the importance of the park to those who served in the military.

Sloan was formerly deployed to Afghanistan and lost friends there. He said the park was a tribute to their memory and a consolation to all who served and lost close friends.
