Avenue from 201st St. to 206th St. S. from county maintenance system in District #3. Andrew Goforth, Assistant District Attorney, this is just on the edge of District #3, a portion of Old HWY 66 & HWY 48, that was returned to the county in March of 1961. This is a public easement deemed public, it is about ½ mile in distance starting at 201st, going to 206th and then connecting at 353rd. Two owners are affected by this portion that will be closed, there are other access to the property. We need to set a public hearing to remove this portion. Goforth went through the process, the Board chose to air on the side of caution and do the 28-day notice. The map and resolution are already prepared and ready to go. Mailer will be prepared and sent out, Mortazavi will take care of the publishing notice in the newspaper.

Item #18: DISCUSSION ONLY/NO ACTION to consider offer to buy or lease mineral interests owned by the County from Cochran Land Service, LLC, in Broadway Addition to Drumright. Goforth spoke to the Board, the County has received a request to purchase mineral rights to county owned property, that is tied to outstanding taxes due. This consists of twelve lots. We cannot sever the mineral interest when the county owns the property. We could look at a lease and that would transfer upon selling of the property. There was discussion of Cochran purchasing the property for the outstanding amount of taxes. This item will be back on the agenda for action at a future date.
Item #19: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to sign Resolution#2021-173 directing the Creek County Treasurer to credit the Creek County Sheriff's Payroll Fund 001-2-0400-1110/B1A with funds from Deputy Daniel Pruitt to reimburse for a check he received from ACCO, in the amount of $520.58, as per Title 62 O.S. § 335, and procedures implemented by the State Auditor's Office.

Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
Item #22; DISCUSSION ONLY/NO ACTION to consider modifying the split of funds between the Highway Districts for the County Highway Unrestricted 1102 accounts and the HTX 1313 Maintenance and Operations Accounts. Stephens spoke to the Board about the 1102 and 1313 accounts and how they are currently being split. Highway cash currently is as follows: HWY-ALL-10%, D1-23%, D2-32%, D3-35%, I would like to request D1-28%, D2-31%, D3-31%. I thought since most of the new road mileage for District #1 came from District #3, it should move over to D1. Warner asked how Stephens was basing his percentages off of, I am looking at where we were and where we are now. Just common-sense factor. District #1 took an additional 111 miles from D3, D2 stayed the same. Next let's look at SB1888 monies it is currently being split as follows: D1-20%, D2-38%, D3-42%, I would like to request D1-31%, D2-34%, D3-34%, with one percent left to distribute. These are the two biggest accounts that effect the most people. There was discussion of D2 having the most road mileage and the effects of not having enough funding currently. What kind of effects this already has on D2 and D3 roads and with the number of employees each district can have on staff? CBRI is already split 1/3 for each district. There was further discussion of the request Stephens proposed. Warner presented his information over the last year 2020-2021 funds distributed, three accounts being broken down being as follows: D1-26.0, D2-32.2%, D3-41.1% and ALL-10%. Now let's divide this by the number of road miles we are working on. D1-12.9% with 140 miles, D2-39.6% with 431 miles and D3-47.6% with 518 miles, this gives D1-$11,747 per mile D2-$4,717.00 per mile and D3-$5,013.00 per mile, D1 is receiving $7,029.00 more than D2 and $6,734.00 more than D3. This is a big difference in dollars per road miles, the majority of the wear and tear are on the county roads within D2 and D3. Stephens stated he disagrees. Warner stated okay let's look at the 140 miles, taking out what the city maintains and look at the wear and tear on all the other roads. I don't believe it is equal to D2 or D3. We are struggling to maintain our graveled roads and or roads are subpar because of this. It's not right for one district to receive twice the funding, when we have a lot more expenses when comparing gravel to asphalt which will last for at least ten years. I have driven all the roads within each district and D1 has a lot of what I call neighborhood roads, that don't receive the same wear and tear our roads do. I am just asking for it to be split equally. Warner figured the differences between the districts D1 has received $1.2 million more in funds than D1 and D2. Stephens discussed the statute requires that the monies be split equally by population, so that every taxpayer can receive their fair share. We now have all the same population, as required by law. You cannot change their tax dollars and give it to another district. Warner asked that you exclude the population of the City of Sapulpa, there was discussion of what the current population is in Sapulpa, Warner stated let's just go with 18,000 you are not working on the city roads. Stephens stated he is trying to do this the fair way and not trying to rob anyone. I can just file for an AG opinion and then we would have to go by that. The six-month bid was briefly discussed on how the price difference is between the districts, D2 and D3 are paying higher costs. Stephens stated again I am trying to keep this simple with moderate adjustments, what you are saying is that I take on more roads and loose funding. I would have to let some employees go and not be able to hire any additional. Warner stated you had a discussion with me when I came in and said I would have some tuff choices to make, I had to lay off four people. You also said I have no doubt that you can get it done as well. Warner stated I have made it work, but it just isn't split fairly. We cannot sustain this and neither can our roads. Like I said there is a huge difference between the districts not only with the roads, but the barns as well. Warner proposed each district receive $5,741.00 per mile. Stephens stated I disagree; I have worked hard over the last ten years to turn District 1 around. And fifteen years ago, the roads didn't look like they do today. For years I didn't receive tax dollars, because I had a bond payment and still managed to save my money to do asphalt projects. I don't think taking on an additional 111 miles with no additional funds is right either. There was discussion of how much money it takes to maintain a gravel road, I don't think it's $90,000.00 stated Stephens. Stephens asked Whitehouse what he thought, Whitehouse stated I have no decision to make today, I am two months into this position. I like to listen to your ideas; I need to do my homework and see what I feel like is the best for each district. Warner stated we will agree to disagree. This item will be back on the agenda at a future date.
Item #23: Discussion and possible action regarding the American Recovery Plan 2021 funds directed to Creek County by the federal government. Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to approve the use of ARPA Capital Outlay Funds for District Attorney's Office to purchase two 2022 F150 Crew Cab 4WD Trucks with emergency vehicle upfit and one 2021 Ford Explorer 4WD SUV, in the amount of $113,978.00 and approving the transfer $113,978.00 from 1566-1-2000-1110 ARPA 2021 Salary Commissioners FY2021-2022 to 1566-1-2000-4110 ARPA 2021 Capital Outlay Commissioners FY2022 and establishing project number 1566-6.1-0200-4110. Andrew Goforth spoke to the Board about the District Attorney's Office needing vehicles and with the planning office just ordering one truck, the dealer ordered two, so we have one holding currently. The lead time on vehicles was discussed, it is taking at a minimal 28 weeks. We are asking that this be consider out of the expenditure code 6.1 Revenue Replacement, we have estimated around $3.1 million going into this expenditure category, if approved this amount will just be misused from transfer. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye. Warner brought up Premium Pay for current employees. The Board discussed what is allowable through the salary rules and U.S. Treasury. The elected officials are excluded from receiving this pay currently. There was discussion of $500.00, being given to all current employees who has worked from Jan 24, 2020 to current more than 38.5 hours are eligible to receive the premium pay. All matching will also be taken out of the ARPA Salary account. Tandra McClellan stated we currently have about 190 active employees. A motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to approve Premium Pay in the amount of $500.00 for current employees who worked 38.5 hours or more since January to be paid premium pay to be issued on December 1, 2021 to be issued from ARPA Salary, establishing project number 1566-4.1-0001-1110. Goforth stated this is roughly $110,000.00 to $120,000.00 total. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye. Warner asked if there was a meeting set for this week, the work group replied no.
