OCTOBER 6-12 IS FIRE PREVENTION WEEK


October 6-12 is Fire Prevention Week so the MWC Fire Department's Fire Prevention Office has some tips to keep you and your family safe!

  • Working smoke detectors are your first line of defense to get out quickly in the event of a fire.
  • If you hear your smoke detectors going off, immediately get on your hands and knees to crawl out. Don't stand up and inhale the toxic smoke.
  • Close the bedroom door before you go to bed. A closed door can slow the spread of flames and toxic smoke and decrease temperatures.
  • Establish a safe meeting place in front of the house for everyone to meet after they've gotten out safely.

MUNICIPAL COURT TO BE CLOSED ON OCTOBER 22


Please note that the Midwest City Municipal Court will be closed for a system update on October 22 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. You won't be able to pay a fine in person, but you can pay online or by phone. 

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. If yours is a charge that you cannot pay online or by phone, you will be referred to the Court.
Illegally dumped sofa and trash

DUMPING IS A HEALTH HAZARD


Can you image someone driving by your house and dumping their sofa, appliances or tires in your yard? And now you have to pay to have their trash removed. That is what is happening to your neighbors in the rural areas of our city.
It's illegal and it shows disregard for others, the community and the environment. The trash and debris from illegal dumping is unsightly and drives down property values in our city. Illegal dumping is a public health hazard as it attracts disease-spreading rodents and mosquitos. Electronic devices contain lead, cadmium and mercury that can contaminant our soil and groundwater. If you see someone that is dumping illegally, get their tag number, description of the person and vehicle, and call 9-1-1.
