Leadership Notes

Continued collaboration W hen Oklahoma City residents approved the first MAPS sales tax in 1993, one of the most important parts of its implementation was the oversight and transparency built in to its administration. The City continued to build on that trust when it partnered with Oklahoma City Public Schools (OKCPS) on two capital investment programs for the district: MAPS for Kids and the district’s 2007 bond program. With the recent approval of the 2016 school bond package, Oklahoma City and the school district have the opportunity to continue their collaboration, but with a new arrangement that will streamline the process while still building on each group’s strengths. When formally approved by both parties, the new School Bond Advisory Board will not be an official trust, but will approve an implementation plan and oversee the bond projects. The board will have seven members: a chairperson jointly appointed by the mayor and the OKCPS Board of Education chairperson, three members appointed by the Oklahoma City Council and three members appointed by the OKCPS Board. The City will be able to use its ongoing capital improvement expertise by managing the advisory board’s operations, developing a project management plan and overseeing the implementation of projects, but OKCPS will approve all project budgets. Bond issue proceeds will pay for management of the bond projects, and the City Council will not be required to approve. This arrangement, which was approved by the Oklahoma City Council on March 28 and as of press time awaits approval by the OKCPS School Board, will allow for efficient management of taxpayer funds and a quicker implementation process, giving our students the improvements they need much sooner. I applaud both parties for collaborating in a way that showcases their strengths.

Dolese Bros. Co. Celebrates 115 Years

I n 1902, Dolese Bros. Co. was founded by three brothers, John, Henry, and Peter, who focused on constructing streets, sewer lines and other projects in the Chicago area. In the few years before Oklahoma statehood, Dolese owned and operated several quarries throughout Oklahoma territory to provide quarried rock for railroad construction and crushed stone that was needed to build the state’s roads as it was being settled. Additionally, Dolese helped construct parts of historic Route 66. Roger M. Dolese inherited the company from his father and uncles in the 1940s, expanding Dolese operations throughout the state and region. Described as a gentle giant, Roger was known by many throughout the company as considerate and attentive to his employees, traits that reflect the atmosphere of Dolese

In the 1950s, Dolese Bros. Co. officially moved its head offices from Chicago to Oklahoma City, and the company expanded steadily under the leadership of Roger Dolese.


today. Roger led the company through many years of sensible growth, and when he died in 2002, passed the company on to his employees through profit sharing. As expansion of Dolese continued, in 2009 they received a contract to help construct the Devon Tower. Every branch of Dolese was involved in the construction project, and on March 21, 2010, delivery began for what was to become the largest and longest continuous concrete pour in state history, with trucks delivering 6,500 cubic yards of concrete for 18 hours. In total, Dolese delivered 120,000 cubic yards of concrete to the project. From 2014-2016, Dolese played a major role in the construction of the Riversport Rapids, a premier whitewater rafting facility in the heart of Oklahoma City. The three channels of the rapids are made of high-strength concrete, developed by Dolese, capable of withstanding the million gallons of water pumped through them every minute. Throughout the two years of construction, Dolese delivered concrete through all hours of the night to complete the project on time for opening day in May of 2016.

Currently, Dolese employs more than 1,000 people, providing customers with concrete, sand, stone and concrete block products. As one of Oklahoma’s oldest and largest construction supply companies, Dolese’s handiwork can be seen in construction projects throughout the state, advancing Oklahoma communities one concrete pour at a time.

Currently, Dolese employs more than 1,000 people across two states and is one of Oklahoma’s oldest and largest construction supply companies.
