Henryetta fire chief David Bullard was named city manager Tuesday night.
Bullard will be retiring from his current position and officially move into the new office Oct. 2.
He has been fire chief for the past 14 years and had worked in several other positions in the city prior to that.
The announcement was made following a nearly 30-minute executive session. He will be taking the position on a three-year contract.
Until that time, Donna White will remain as interim city manager.
During the executive session, council members had discussed purchasing some property. White will negotiate the price of the property.
The Henryetta park board was reconstituted Tuesday night with seven people named to serve for three and four year terms.
Those board members for the four-year terms include: Jeremy Roberts, Nita Robertson, Keith Hair and James McCullough. Named to three year terms were Steve Sanford, Jill Francis and Laura Goodner.
Council members approved the appointment of Dr. David Warden to the Henryetta Economic Development Authority and reappointed Ron Dombek to the Hospital Authority Board with Diana Carter as an alternate for a five year term.
A request by the chamber of commerce to close down one block of Main Street from Fourth to Fifth streets was modified.
Mayor Michael Dickey said there was a concern over the event being held at night as well as Main Street is a designated state highway.
Discussion about the Monster Mash event Oct. 28 revolved around blocking Fifth Street from Main to Trudgeon and using the recently renovated parking area for some of the events.
Chamber executive director pointed out the original thought was to hold the event on Main Street to allow several businesses to take advantage of the increased foot traffic.
Councilor Jennifer Munholland suggested blocking off both north and south Fifth Street. The problem with people crossing Main Street was brought up as an issue with that.
The council finally gave approval for the north Fifth street closure.
Another October event, Cruise Knight, will have bounce houses set up for youngsters with the council giving $600 toward that event. Cruise Knight will be held Oct. 14.
In the Municipal Authority portion of the meeting, council members approved the purchase of digital water meters at a cost of $72,987. That will convert some of the water meters in the town.
The city will be able to get readings from those meters through a hand held device.
The cost is expected to be reimbursed from a grant.
Henryetta will be getting a new trash truck. The decision was made to spend $343,735 with delivery expected by the end of the year.
The city will be seeking bids for a pump station on Fourth Street.
