Dewey City Council approves a proposal from CivicPlus for web design and hosting services Monday evening.
City manager Kevin Trease says it’s something they’ve wanted to do for some time. Trease says they would like to move the process forward as soon as possible. He says they estimate the cost for the first year will be around $3,900, but won’t know the total price until the entire package is assembled.
Trease says CivicPlus serves several other Oklahoma communities that don’t complain about the group’s services. He says they will look to add online bill payment, which will be done through the City’s billing software, not CivicPlus.
Mayor Tom Hays says he is delighted that the new website has been created. He says they want him to act as a source of communication with their citizens.

An order regarding an amendment to the City of Dewey’s CMO Plan adopting the revised and restated OkMRF Primary Defined Contribution Pension Plan would be approved at the meeting. IRS language changes prompted the change that was to be reflected in the minutes of Monday night’s meeting.
Finally, the Board would approve a recommendation from the Oklahoma Municipal Assurance Group to deny a tort claim for vehicle damage sustained at the Sonic at Dewey. Trease says a citizen claimed city workers left a door open for an on-site dumpster that swung open as she passed, causing her to swerve into a pole. He says an investigation would be held, but the date the incident took place is a day that the city’s garbage trucks do not travel that road.
