The trustees of the Ponca City Utility Authority approved a request Tuesday night to advertise for bids to replace the existing concrete storm channel from 14th Street at East Highland Avenue to Elmwood Avenue.

Water flows through the channel from Hartford Avenue through the RCB Bank property. It was installed in 1961 and in recent years engineers have seen it crumble, break, and create void spaces behind the concrete.

Assistant City Engineer Johnny Barron said a significant high water event could threaten the structural integrity of the bank building. He said getting the bids would allow construction to begin in October. The work would be paid for by the storm water fee on the Ponca City utility bill, City Clerk Marc LaBossiere told the trustees.
