City Manager Craig Stephenson announces the City of Ponca City has been awarded three grants from Phillips 66 Refinery Community Giving, which will enhance the environment and safety of the community.
A $60,000 Pillar of Safety grant will be used to purchase and install musical themed playground equipment at Garfield Park. Garfield Park is adjacent to Garfield Elementary School and surrounded by a historic pebbled walkway. This project will provide an alternative recreational opportunity for children and families.
A $30,000 Pillar of Safety grant will be used to purchase mobile repeaters for the City of Ponca City’s public safety communication radio system in order to enhance public safety and emergency operations. The mobile radio repeaters will operate out of public safety vehicles and provide a reliable, redundant power source. Funds will also be used to replace traffic radars for patrol vehicles.
A $30,000 Pillar of Environmental grant will be used to purchase and distribute dual smoke and carbon monoxide battery operated detectors. These detectors will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis to income-qualifying homeowners and detect both fast flaming and slow smoldering fires. Funds will also be used to assist with community fire training at local schools and non-profit organizations.
