HUGO –– Hugo City Council and Municipal Authority members debated the rates at the Todd Whatley/Lige Hammock Rodeo Arena during Tuesday night’s meeting.
With the Friday through Sunday price at $350 per promotion per day, the council members discussed the Monday to Thursday fee. After suggestion from local citizens concerning the rates, the council members agreed and approved the fee of $150 per promotion per day for use of the arena on Monday through Thursday. City Manager David Rawls made it clear that the adjusted rate would be subject to each event and availability and would be taken into effect on Jan. 1, 2011.
The renovation of the Todd Whatley/Lige Hammock arena is complete and has hosted many successful events since its finalization.
After review of the Benham, LLC airport contract, city attorney Gary Brownsworth said everything looked to be in order and valid. Contracts for each project at Stan Stamper Regional Airport will be reviewed before each update is initiated.
The council approved the first payment to Gary Guest Painting in the amount of $28,800 regarding the Boys & Girls Club rehab. The company went well beyond what was asked and painting of the club is more than 67% complete, Rawls reported.
The final pay estimate to RK Hall for the amount of $71,928.61 was approved. Phase One of the city street project is complete and came in under budget.
Councilors approved the minutes from the Oct. 5 meetings and financial statements and purchase order lists were approved.
