The Ponca City Board of Commissioners will vote on a resolution approving the operating budgets of various city funds at its meeting Monday night.

The board will meet at 5:30 p.m. Monday in the Commission Chamber at City Hall, 516 East Grand Avenue.

Commissioners also will vote on an ordinance amending the city code on electric rates to correct scrivener’s errors in the May 23, 2016, ordinance on the rates.

Another ordinance on the agenda would create a civilian Volunteer Disabled Parking Violation Unit to assist in the enforcement of disabled parking and other parking ordinances.

Commissioners also will receive public comments on an application by the Police Department for grant funds from the 2016 Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant. Part of this item will include an interlocal agreement by the Police Department for grant funds in the amount of $13,164.

Another grant will be considered by the board. The 2015 Assistance to Firefighters Grant, for $109,364, would include a local cost match of $10,936 and would authorize the Development Services Department to execute all necessary documents.

Following the commissioners’ meeting, members will meet as the trustees of the Ponca City Utility Authority. In that capacity they will consider and vote on a resolution approving the operating budgets for the Water, Ponca City Energy, Solid Waste, Landfill Closure, Solid Waste Depreciation Reserve, Utility Billing, Wastewater, Stormwater, and Technology Services Funds.
