ENID, Okla. —
The commission also approved $730,000 from the city’s rainy day fund, a $6 million coffer that has sat untapped for several years. The money will be paired with another $1.3 million from the general fund to expand the Enid Trail System.
Timm was the lone dissenting vote, and said he has a problem taking money out of the rainy day fund for trail improvement instead of a disaster.
“We have no idea when it’s going to happen,” he said.
Commissioner Tammy Wilson defended the vote, saying that the trails are a priority for the city.
“And I think if we get hit by a tornado, $5 million is still going to be a pretty good chunk of money,” she said.
