The Moore City Council met for its regularly scheduled meeting Monday night.

The council approved a proposal to split a construction project into two parts. The request now will be submitted to the Oklahoma Transportation Commission for consideration.

The city has received federal funding for the intersection improvement project at Southwest Fourth St. and Classen Blvd. The project includes widening of the road and signalization.

By spliting the project into two projects, the city can save about $30,000 on its local match of the grant, according to city staff.

If approved, the first part of the project would modify and widen the intersection, and the second part of the project will be the traffic signal installation.

In other business, the council approved the purchase of seven vehicles for the Moore Police Department.

The purchase includes three police cars, three detective cars, and a pickup truck.

Five of the vehicles were budgeted. The additional car and truck the department requested will be paid for out of the police department's discretionary account.

Total cost of the vehicles is $113,579.
