I love Midwest City and how it is building up the community, however, I wish there were options for indoor family activities. There aren't many to choose from and the ones we do have are not in the condition. The shopping and restaurant selection is great, but I have to go out of town to do something with my kids indoors to escape the summer heat or cold in the winter -which ultimately leads me to spend my money in other cities either shopping or eating where these activities are. I love the city, but I think it would benefit with better management instead of the same type of restaurants (sandwich shops or chicken restaurants), shopping, or the continuous construction of office/building space that sits empty for months or years! If MWC wants to be family oriented, give the families somewhere to go besides an outdoor park. See More

You can't change auto pay to a different bank unless you use checks. I haven't used checks in years. The city is nice but I have had two water lines break at the connection to main after they changed... things which I ended up having to repair. See More

Midwest City should be renamed Hotel California— you can check out but can never leave because all the roads are shut down or backed up! Can they not finish one project before starting another?? Is t...he same two man crew that Puerto Rico hired??? See More

I must say, I am very impressed by the City of Midwest City. Everyone is super friendly and they are really prompt. Got services turned on at City Hall and I was laughing at the clerk running the paym...ent window because she knew just about everyone by name that walked up. The lady who runs the window in Norman is like that old lady from Monsters Inc. "KASOWSKI?" They even give you a little book of helpful information to learn how they operate, your councilman and a Ward map.

Called sanitation for a recycling bin. the lady was super nice and they had one to me in about 3 hours.

You have to be present when the water is turned on and I had to go get my daughter, so I left a note on the door saying "please come back at 4 if possible" the guy comes about 4:30 and says "I almost couldn't make it, but I was passing by and just wanted to check again." After he turns it on, he checked to make sure the meter was stable and said "well have a good day, just give us a call if you need anything!" he went out of his way to accommodate me, and I'm very thankful. Almost all the employees I have done in contact with have told me "welcome to town!"

I've only owned my MWC home for a couple of days and I already feel 'in'. Thank you all. I think we chose a good place.

Its getting rediculous. Ever since the electronic water meters were installed our bill has skyrocketed. You call them and they tell you that you are using water when youre not even home or asleep. I h...ave had it checked for leaks. No leaks on our end. This month's bill is almost $300 See More

I called the trouble line on sunday morning about a backed up sewer line. The gentlmsn that answered the phone was polite and assured me they would have a crew out within the hour. The crew arrived ...on time, they showed real concern regarding the problem. The 3 gentlemen kept me apraised of the situation during the time in the area. They fixed the problem quickly and effeciently cleaned up the mess in my yard and left me very pleased that I chose to live in MWC. See More

I am curious about the 27.66. % revenue the Fire Dept. receives. How long have they received that percentage and is it taken into consideration that the cost of doing business and taking care of citiz...ens costs more than in previous years? Perhaps 27.66% isn't enough to buy trucks and keep them running, bunker gear, pay utilities, purchase equipment, quality uniforms, pay salaries and benefits of current and retired employees and all of the many other expenses that go along with running what should be a respected fire dept. Not to mention the number of manning is substantially lower than 15 years ago. What is the salary of the City Manager today and what was the salary of the City Manager 15 years ago? See More

I'd be cool if you guys could get someone to inspect our gas meter so that ONG could run a temp gas line to it. Because not having gas since Wednesday night is pretty cool. I mean it's literally been since it's cool outside. I hear ice cold showers are good for the metabolism. See More

I love the city - its a great commute to my work and very affordable. However the Public Works Department seems to be extremely short-staffed. I was recently told that I would have to wait several w...eeks for a leaking water main to be repaired because the water line crew has a long list of things to fix. Since my leak is not an emergency, it will have to wait. So frustrating to risk permanent property damage to my home because the Midwest City Public Works Department is too busy to fix it properly!

I was headed to meet my real estate agent to see a home. He did not warn me about the horrors of 15th street and the side streets. What should have taken 15 minutes took 45 to arrive. I got there a...nd he said, "Yes, 15th will be tore up for about a year." I then said, "Then lets not even look at this home, lets leave this hell hole and GTF out of this town and look at homes elsewhere." See More

The City of Midwest City should have thought twice about closing public shelters that were built with FEMA grant money, just because they don't want to be bothered to send personnel to open them in of severe weather - forget about "liability" about people dying on their way there, more people would die because they don't have shelter. They also should reconsider all the restrictive rules they have on private shelters being built on people's properties. They don't care about their citizens' lives, they care about their paychecks. Didn't you just spend about $300k to "reinforce offices security"? We have been trying to build us a storm shelter and we can't, because you don't allow storm shelters in the front yard or closer than 5' from property line even when there are no easements. If this tornado would have followed the track of the 1999 or 2003 ones, we would have had the same situation that is in Moore now. See More

Does Midwest city have an ordinance against smoking in open spaces? My sister was accosted tonight at the outdoor movie by a fanatical woman in pajamas. She told her that there were "children" there s...o she should not smoke outside! She then made a fuss and got the 14 year old boy who was running the movie to come over and he told her that she should go to the sides of the crowd to smoke. The pj woman had no kids and the closest kids were behind us and their parents were not upset by her cigarette. Just wondering what is going on. See More

I do not feel it is in the best interest of the good people of midwest city to go out of state for a help care lease in kentucky, Did you not learn by the florida connection. Yep! now it is costing 50... million to get out of that one. What does kentucky know about the people and their health much less oklahoma? what does the mayor and councial tend to pocket on this deal? We as taxpayers need to check the books. Mercy and OU medical are two outstanding hospital systems the would benefit MWC hospital. There fore keeping it in oklahoma. and retaining good medical staff and drawing good doctors to MWC. Flying to kentucky Mr. Fry and the councial raisf a serious RED FLAG! He wants profit over health after all that is what realistate people do! Plus retain for themselves a sizable profit. Shall we say a kick back! He is not seeking reelection! are they they tryin to boost their retirement with a little extra . maybe a phone call to the otc and irs. may help. Keep oklahoma health care in oklahoma. Oklahomans and Midwest City residents know what is best for us. what will a Kentucky cost us later? See More

For safety reasons how about an ordinance be put into force that people can't park in the street for long periods of time, especially if they live there. Streets like Woodside Drive, Shadybrook and o...thers in MWC that are straight shots from Reno to NE 10th are busy places with people speeding and lots of cars broke down or parked in the street. Makes it dangerous. Worse that MWC has invested so much money in sidewalks and some people choose to still walk in the streets. See More

The move to close the UMMM HELLO public shelters for storm season was not a smart move! Now who gets to use them ? Well I guess if I am standing outside one of these shelters when a tornado is coming ...I won't be allowed in? But if you happen to be inside one of these buildings you will be ? So why not make everyone leave that would be the fair way to do it wouldn't it? I mean really I shop Midwest City and pay taxes there so shouldn't I be able to use the shelters also I don't understand how you could turn people away for wanting to be safe? Not everyone can afford a storm shelter to be safe in Oklahoma severe storms and the shelters are already there for public use, the word here is "PUBLIC" See More

Who knew you had a website until I saw it in the paper. Facebook doesn't find it if you search for Midwest City, and your link on the city site is not working (Twitter does, but no postings for month...s). I had to dig the exact link out of the nonworking code to find it! Way to hard for most. See More

US National Weather Service Norman Oklahoma

9:00 AM - parts of north Texas are now in an Ice Storm Warning. This highlights the area where we expect the most damaging accumulations of ice on trees and lines. This could result in power outages and will cause travel problems across the area.

The rest of our area is in a Winter Weather Advisory, where we expect freezing rain and sleet to increase through the day today. At 9:00 AM, precipitation was moving into western north Texas and southwest Oklahoma. This will continue moving northeast and be as far north as I-40 by midday. Ice accumulation on trees and power lines should be less in the advisory area, but will still be plenty to cause travel problems.

It's not out of the question that parts of southern Oklahoma might need to be upgraded to an ice storm warning later today. We're watching very closely, of course.

DEQ to Hold Informational Meeting to Discuss New Superfund Site in Midwest City

The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) will host an informationa...l meeting for the public on Thursday, February 22 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Nick Harroz – Midwest City Community Center, 200 N. Midwest Blvd, in Midwest City.

The informational meeting is being held to discuss the new Eagle Industries Superfund Site. A presentation will be given at 7:15 p.m. Representatives from DEQ and EPA will be available to discuss and answer questions.

Eagle Industries is a 2.271 acre property located at 10901 S.E. 29th Street in Midwest City. Eagle Industries inspected and repaired aircraft oxygen and fire extinguisher systems for third party customers from 1990 through 2010s. Onsite soil and ground water contamination resulted from improper handling practices of the chemical trichloroethylene (TCE). In January 2018, Eagle Industries was listed on the National Priorities List to address the contamination. Superfund is the federal government’s program to clean up the nation’s uncontrolled hazardous waste sites.

29th and Air Depot Lights Update
As previously reported, around 2:30 a.m., Saturday 2/17, a driver hit the control cabinet at 29th and Air Depot. This cabinet manages signals at 29th and Air Depot and signals at on and off ramps at I40 and Air Depot. Consequently, stop signs are now in place at all these locations.

City officials met with Mid State Traffic Control this morning and devised a plan for repairing the signals at 29th and Air Depot and I-40 on and off ramps at Air... Depot. They have developed a plan to reconstruct the signal controls with new equipment that is more readily available and more easily maintained. As part of the reconstruction, they will also install guards to harden the control box in hopes of protecting it from future crashes.

Our hope is to have some functions working at all three locations by close of business today. However, until replacement parts arrive and are installed, the lights will be on timers only. Without full inter-connectivity between all three signals, motorist should still expect congestion in the area.

If everything goes perfectly, weather cooperates and equipment arrives timely, we should have fully functioning interconnected signals at all three locations by weeks end.

To help relieve congestion in this area, we should continue to encourage motorist to use alternate routes and avoid the area of Air Depot and S.E. 29th and the use of exits at I-40 and Air Depot.

Notice to MWC and TAFB area residents - Street Signal Light Outages: Due to a vehicle hitting the signal control cabinet, the signal lights are out at S.E. 29th ST and Air Depot and at the on and off ramps at 1-40 and Air Depot. This is just north of the main gate at Tinker Air Force Base along Air Depot. Stop signs have been placed in this area.

We want to encourage motorist to avoid the area as much as possible. City officials state that it will be at least a few days before replacement parts will be available to make the necessary repairs to the control cabinet.
