Item #9: DISCUSSION ONLY/NO ACTION on presentation by Emblem Strategies regarding ARPA compliance assistance-Shawna McWaters, Representative. McWaters thanked the Board for listening to presentation, we have offices out of Edmond and Durant and are currently servicing seven counties with ARPA compliance. I have reviewed Creek Counties funds, roughly $14 million was received, we would like to offer our services to assist with compliance, eligibility, reporting, non-profit compliance, help figure Revenue replacement for the county and help with any other grant opportunities through other Federal monies or other agencies. I would love the opportunity to work with your county. Warner briefly discussed the three different options of assistance, the least is 2% fee, roughly $278,000.00. McWaters stated correct. I see great opportunity within your regional areas. Stephens stated we appreciate your presentation, however we are very fortunate here in our County, we have a full-time Assistant ADA for the County. Between the Assistant ADA and our work group that has been established, we have weekly meetings reviewing the most updated information. Changes are occurring and the ongoing of the final rule is unknown, but I feel we have a good handle on this currently. We are looking at what can we do to serve the most people in our county. McWaters stated if there is anything that we could do, even help looking at different pots of money for regional projects, please let us know. The Board thanked McWaters for coming.
Item #10: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to approve painting/drywall project for the Creek County Health Department per recommendations of Anna Stringfellow, Health Department to Mark Cromwell, dba Kitchen Plus, for $7,335.00, as per Title 61 O.S. § 101-138. Quotes received from Kitchen Plus, Tulsa Paint Company and Baca Painting and Services. Stringfellow stated that the lowest bid is Cromwell and he is our maintenance personnel as well. Musser has reviewed the quotes. Stephens asked if all bidders have bid on the same projects, Stringfellow stated yes. Musser stated we are currently waiting on insurance from Cromwell, but has done this type of work in the past. Stringfellow provided insurance information to Musser. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
Item #11: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Warner to let for Bid#22-2 Creek County Justice Center Roof Replacement, for the Creek County Public Facilities Authority, to be opened 12/13/21 and a mandatory pre-bid meeting will be held on 12-1-21 at 10:00 a.m. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
Item #12: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse to sign Lease Agreement with Yellowhouse Machinery Company for two 2022 John Deere 770G Graders for District #3, with unit price of $295,264.89, monthly $2,943.57, with a five-year term and a balloon payment of $140,282.71, if we choose to purchase them on that fifth year. Whitehouse stated we have two graders that are on their last leg, the money we are putting into them are just not worth it. Upon this five-year term, we can get them replaced with new ones. This helps with the cost of maintenance. Warner reviewed the numbers to see the overall cost of five years, you will be spending roughly $176,614.00. Stephens asked Goforth if he has reviewed the leases, Goforth stated Jana and I have reviewed the contracts and they are good. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
Item #13: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse to approve using the ACCO Deductible Fund to pay for damages to a 2019 John Deere 60G Mini Excavator VIN#1FF060GXPKJ291061 which was damaged on October 20,2020, from water damages, District #3. Whitehouse stated the piece of equipment is a total loss, we need to get this wrapped up, as we are paying $1,500.00, a month on a piece of equipment that we cannot use. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
Item #14: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to sign transfer approving transfer of $53,043.55 from the General Government Maintenance and Operations Fund 001-1-2000-2005/R2 Commissioners FY2021-2022, to the Sheriff's Office Capital Outlay Fund 001-2-0400-4110/B3 Sheriff FY2022, for the purchase of a vehicle and up-fit of said vehicle due to cancelled purchase orders, because of vehicle chip shortage delaying delivery beyond the fiscal year funds that were encumbered. Stephens stated we have been working on a solution for the last couple of weeks. Kerry Patton has supplied the information that the reserved money for this vehicle will be in the general account carryover for next year's budget numbers. A new purchase order will take place of the old fiscal year's purchase order and the money lapsed will cut the R2 account carryover short this year, but see that monies come back next year. Bret Bowling stated he was warned in March that there was a chip shortage and that this would happen. We have been working the State Auditor and District Attorney's Office to come up with a solution. The day we canceled the p.o., we received the k-9 vehicle the next day. Mortazavi touched base on the importance of establishing a carryover or rainy-day fund account, for instances like this. Once, the current budget has been allocated, you cannot supplement an office request, unless a department gives up some of their funding to fulfill that request. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
Item #15: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to sign Resolution#2021-163 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 $103.24, as per O.S. 62 § 335, and procedures implemented by the State Auditor's Office. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
Item #16: Discussion and possible action regarding the American Recovery Plan 2021 funds directed to Creek County by the federal government. Andrew Goforth briefed the Board on SB3011, I have no new update as this is still sitting. However, they have passed a different bill last week for infrastructure. (1) Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to approve the use of ARPA M&O Funds for Emergency Management to provide Rave Mobile Safety App, in the amount of $4,500.00 and approving the transfer $4,500.00 from 1566-1-2000-1110 ARPA 2021 Salary Commissioners FY2021-2022 to 1566-1-2000-2005 FY20222 and establishing project number 1566-1.8-2700-2005. Covey Murray stated that the Sheriff had proposed this app, a couple of years ago. Our intention with offering this app to employees and offices is to keep offices informed if one office is closed due to COVID, we had an outbreak and needed to notify employees, emergency alerts due to weather, active shooter, or the county being closed. This could also be utilized for upcoming events for the county. Notify the police, fire, ambulance and allow the Sheriff to communicate with the outlying schools. This would be an optional download for employees, each elected official would manage their users and get with admin to send out a mass alert. This app has some much potential, Goforth stated. There was discussion of which category does this fit under, Goforth stated I believe 1.8, is the best fit. There was discussion of other counties using the app and how they have had great success. We have approximately 200 employees, the company has honored the price from last quote. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye. (2) Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to approve the use of ARPA Capital Outlay Funds for Emergency Management to purchase a 500-gallon water buffalo, in the amount of $6,425.00 from Wylie Sprayers of Oklahoma City and approving the transfer $6,425 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 1566-5.14-2700-4110. Murray stated there has been multiple instances where we have been contracted by different agencies needing water. Recently at the Juvenile Justice Center, Bristow Hospital and Drumright. Currently we would have to borrow one from State Emergency Management or Creek Nation. We have in the past used a fire department rig to provide water, this would be more sanitary to utilize. Don Engle, Treasurer asked if one tank would be sufficient, Murray stated at this time we only have enough storage space for one. We could always borrow one if needed. Other quote received from Portable Tank Group Inc. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye. A motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to approve the use of ARPA M&O Funds for the Assessor's Office to provide one-time flyover high resolution imagery to survey the entire county, in the amount $74,720.00 from Eagleview and approving the transfer $74,720.00 from 1566-1-2000-1110 ARPA 2021 Salary Commissioners FY2021-2022 to 1566-1-2000-2005 ARPA 2021 M&O Commissioners FY2022 and establishing the project number 1566-1.12-1700-2005 and authorize the Chairman to sign contract once it has been provided and reviewed by Goforth. Jonathan Ballard, Eagleview spoke to the board, we would provide a 9" overlay, which then could be shared with the Sheriff's Office, Planning and Zoning, INCOG and other agencies determined by the Board. We have provided services of 6" imagery to INCOG for the Sapulpa area for the last ten years. Currently we have thirty counties we provide this service for. You will receive five images, one from the ground straight down, a 40-degree angle from the north, south, east and west, which gives you a 360 degree walk around view of the property. Also, anyone that uses our services, you then would have access to that imagery. This is an allowable expenditure do to telework, the Assessor's Office can work from home, being able to measure sites, distances and see if something has changed with the property. If there has been a change, they have that option to go out and physically do an inspection. This also provides elevation data, with the recent COVID this would allow a safer work environment, especially with all the marijuana activity in the county. We provide training at no cost. Paula Vaughn and Marie Stephens both spoke about the recent marijuana surge and their experiences with armed guards not letting the staff on property to evaluate the business personal or property. As an example, Vaughn stated I have one grow that is $3 to $4 million dollars, that has not reported their business personal, I have a map of their property and all that is on it. It was not there in 2017 with google earth, I have real time information to work with. We currently have 273 marijuana grows, dispensaries and processing business, we rank number 4 in the state. There was discussion of when this flyover could take place, Ballard stated we would like to do it before Jan 01, so that the Assessor can use that information for taxes. Typically, our business is done from January to March. We could provide the hard drive by February. You currently have 1036 square miles; some goes over the county lines. Our lowest cost is $70.00 per square mile, we do have 6" imagery for $120 per square mile and 3" for $400.00 per square mile. To cut cost it could be broke up into sections, if there are budgetary restraints. Stephens stated we have discussed doing it in quarters, like the Assessor currently does. Ballard discussed where a no cost flyover could happen with a hurricane, EF4 tornado or a 6.0 or greater earthquake. Warner asked if there was an emergency situation how fast could a flyover take place, probably within 24 hours at cost. Bret Bowling, Sheriff stated this is not being used for our services. There was further discussion of the types of equipment being used and how it is shot. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
Public Comment: NONE
Item #17: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Warner to recess until 1:30 p.m. for discussion and possible action regarding redistricting the Commissioners Districts pursuant to 19 O.S. 321. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye. Stephens called the meeting back to order at 1:32 p.m. Roll Call Stephens present, Warner present, Whitehouse - present. The Commissioners reviewed options 4A, 4b, 4C and current precinct information with INCOG and Joy Naifeh, Election Board Secretary. Stephens stated District 1 is still short one hundred miles, to start conversations. The black line represents Congressional lines, blue lines are for House Districts and red lines are for Senate boundaries. The Commissioners worked through different options with precincts within 418, 419 and 409. Stephens stated we are closer than we ever have been with 4C, I just want the same challenge before each district. Population numbers are very close and the deviations is good. Joy Naifeh asked that she have time to review the current recommendations of 4C, more particular with the Bristow area. The Board stated that would be fine, we will get an overlay sent over with house, senate and congressional lines, along with precincts to Joy to review. The Board stated we will have a special meeting on Friday, November 12, 2021 at 9:00 a.m. to review any discrepancies, if there are none then we will cancel the meeting.
