Town Hall Meeting for Residents Living in the Bridge Creek Fire Protection District
Everyone who lives or owns property South of SH-37 and East of Cemetery Rd (the 3-Mile Line) is currently within the Bridge Creek Fire Protection District. When the City of Tuttle annexed this area 20 years ago, everyone gained automatic response from the Tuttle Fire Department. However, the area also remained a part of the Bridge Creek Fire Protection District, and all property owners in this area still pay an additional ad valorem (or property) tax every year to help support the district. The City of Tuttle has no property tax.
A majority of the residents in the Whispering Pines Addition filed a petition with the Grady County Board of Commissioners, in accordance with 19 O.S. 901.23 requesting to withdraw their neighborhood from the Bridge Creek Fire Protection District since they also pay for and receive service from the City of Tuttle. A potential decision to grant the withdrawal may be made by Grady County on January 25th, 2016.
Prior to this meeting, the City of Tuttle will be hosting a Town Hall meeting for the residents of the Whispering Pines Addition and any other Tuttle resident who also lives in the Bridge Creek Fire Protection District. The Town Hall meeting will be 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 14th, 2016, at the First Baptist Church of Tuttle’s Family Life Center (14 SW 2nd St in Downtown Tuttle). Leadership with the Bridge Creek Fire Department will give a brief presentation regarding the services they provide, and how they believe you benefit by living in their district. Representatives for the City of Tuttle, including Mayor Tommy Joe Chester and most members of the Tuttle City Council, will also be present to answer any questions you may have regarding the Fire and Ambulance services we provide to the entire community. This 1-hour meeting is for informational purposes only. The City of Tuttle is hosting this meeting to help foster information-sharing with area residents so they can make an informed decision. This City of Tuttle does not have any decision-making authority regarding whether residents remain a part of the Bridge Creek Fire Protection District.
Fire Chief Bruce Anthony is always more than happy to speak with anyone regarding any questions or concerns they may have regarding Tuttle fire and ambulance services at firstname.lastname@example.org or 405-381-4467 (Tuttle dispatch).
A limb collection site is open to City residents & trash customers, at the Tuttle Soccer Complex, 1500 North Cemetery Road, thru January 31.
The only debris being taken at the collection site is trees, limbs, bushes & brush. No household trash or construction debris can be taken per DEQ & EPA regulations.
Those needing pick-up service will need to cut down their limbs into 4-foot pieces and bring them to the curb. Larger pieces such as tree trunks must be cut down so they can be lifted by 2 people. If pieces cannot be lifted, they will be left behind.
It is not necessary to call for a pick-up, but please keep in mind it may take up to 30 days for crews to reach you. Your patience & understanding are appreciated.
If you need assistance with cutting down limbs, please contact Southern Baptist Disaster Relief at either of the following phone numbers: 405-388-6912 or 405-415-5261.
