HALLOWEEN SAFETY TIPS

  • When choosing a costume, stay away from long trailing fabric. If your child is wearing a mask, make sure the eye holes are large enough so he or she can see out.
  • Provide children with flashlights to carry for lighting or glow sticks as part of their costume.
  • Use battery-operated candles or glow-sticks in jack-o-lanterns. If you use a real candle, use extreme caution. Make sure children are watched at all times when candles are lit. Be sure to place lit pumpkins well away from anything that can burn and far enough out of the way of trick-or-treaters, doorsteps, walkways and yards.

SAVE TIME, PAY YOUR FINE ONLINE


If you received a traffic citation, you now have the option to pay by phone or pay online rather than coming to Municipal Court. To pay by phone, call 1-800-444-1187. To pay online, visit paymidwestcity.com. You can pay for most traffic violations, court costs or to post a bond. We can't accept payments for anything related to a juvenile case or jailable offenses such as assault and battery or petty larceny. When you go online or call, if yours is a charge that you cannot pay online or by phone, you will be referred to the Court.

NO PLASTIC BAGS IN RECYCLING

As in other cities in our area, we can't accept plastic bags through our curbside recycling program any longer.

The plastic bags tear and wrap around the gears and equipment that separates the recyclables in the sorting facility. They shut the machines down until the bags can be manually removed. Thank you for not putting any plastic bags - grocery bags or trash bags - in your recycling cart!

COMMUNITY IMPROVEMENT GRANT PROGRAM


Applications for the Community Improvement Grant Program, formerly the Midwest City Memorial Hospital Authority Grant Program, are now available. Applications are open to any entity or individual working to improve the quality of life in Midwest City through programs that address the diverse issues and opportunities facing the community.

Information and applications are available on the city's website or by calling 739-1204. The deadline for applications is November 2. Grant awards will be announced in late February 2019.

PLEASE DON'T FEED THE GEESE

Wildlife experts tell us not to feed geese and other birds as it can be harmful to them as well as to the environment. Feeding them can cause their population to grow and even contribute to the spread of disease.

Here in Midwest City, we have another important reason to avoid feeding the geese, especially those at Joe B. Barnes Regional Park. The geese can cause bird strikes - a collision between an airborne animal and an aircraft. Bird strikes are a significant threat to flight safety and have caused a number of accidents and even fatalities. Please help us be a good neighbor to the base and the pilots in training there.
