Item #8: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to clarify the term employee, as all employees that the County pays unemployment benefits will receive $500.00 premium pay payment as authorized at the November 22, 2021 meeting per recommendations of Tandra McClellan. Tandra McClellan, Payroll Clerk spoke to the Board, I have received numerous phone calls about the term employee and who qualifies for the premium pay. I would recommend that "Employees" eligible are all employees that the county pays unemployment contributions on. This would exclude all Board Members (Tax Roll, Excise, etc.), Precinct Workers and Elected Officials. Which would target the employees that worked through the pandemic and qualify per the terms set by the Board last week. There was discussion of the Fairgrounds part-time employees, McClellan stated this would exclude them, as they are under contract preforming a service. Initially the Board stated anyone that received a W-2, but we need to break it down further. This would also cover part-time employees who has meet the hours required that helped supplement departments when other employees were out. Checks will be processed on December 1, 2021 and will be ready for the Department Heads to pick-up December 2, 2021. They will require a signature from Department Head and each employee will be required to sign that they are receiving their premium pay. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

Item #9: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to sign Resolution#2021-175 changing the name of Requisitioning Officer from Anna Stringfellow to Anna Owens for the Creek County Health Department Accounts (1216-3-5000-1110/MD1A, 1216-3-5000-1310/MD1C, 1216-3-5000-2005/MD2, 1216-3-5000-4110/MD3, and 1216-3-5000-2999/MD4. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

Item #10: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to sign Resolution#2021-176 directing the Creek County Treasurer to credit the Creek County General Government Maintenance and Operations Fund 001-1-2000-2005/R2 with funds from the Creek County Court Clerk's Office Fund for reimbursement of utility payments, in the amount of $116.52, as per 62 O.S. § 335, and procedures implemented by the State Auditor's Office. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

Item #11: Discussion and possible action regarding the American Recovery Plan 2021 funds directed to Creek County by the federal government. Andrew Goforth, Assistant District Attorney briefly spoke to the Board, there are no major updates on the ARPA 2021 funds. We do need to discuss the workgroup meeting this week to review all call for projects for Water/Sewer and go over each request. There were discussions of what day works best, it will either be November 30, 2021 at 3:00 p.m. or December 01, 2021 at 3:00 p.m. An email will go out to confirm what date works best for Barbara Albritton and workgroup.
