MOORE —

Sooner Disc Golf representative Kate Schwartz said the economic impact of disc golf tournaments is big and Moore can be the beneficiary of disc golf tournaments.

“There are so many disc golfers in Moore and they are in the recovery process, too,” Schwartz said. “All we’re asking is for the ability to put it back in.”

Mayor Glenn Lewis said the park needs vacant land to be kept as gray fox territory because it is an endangered species. Lewis said he has a letter from a judge with an injunction from about 1999, and the city is trying to find out if the gray fox is still in danger.

Preliminary research by The Transcript revealed no listing of the gray fox as endangered in Oklahoma.

City council members also approved an ordinance clarifying that only city-owned and operated storm warning sirens would be exempt from the city noise ordinance. The ordinance is designed to prevent private storm sirens.

In other city business, the city council reappointed Ralph Sherrad, Gary Lunow and Louis Williams to the Moore Planning Commission.

The city council also appointed Danielle McKenzie to fill the unexpired term of Sandy Elledge on the planning commission. Five applicants introduced themselves to the city council, making the appointment a tough choice.

“We’ve never had this many people apply before,” Lewis said.

There was also an opening on the Board of Adjustment and Dana Moffatt was appointed to that position.

Organizers of the Annual Moore War Run presented city council members with a commemorative t-shirt. The annual race has raised a almost $50,000 during its five years of existence. This year the race was renamed as the Moore Strong Run to show unity because the race supportd all three Moore high dchools.
