Item #6: DISCUSSION of new business. (In accordance with the Open Meetings Act, Title 25 O.S. § 311(A)(9), new business defined as any matter not known about or which could not have been reasonably foreseen within 24 hours of this meeting. Public Announcement that we received two late bids for Bid#21-11 6-Month Bridge/HWY Materials and Professional Services from Kirby-Smith Machinery and Leo Hicks Creosoting Company, these bids were received on June 7, 2021 after 2 p.m.

Item #8: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Warner to accept Bid#21-12 Ballot Printing for the Creek County Election Board and award upon the recommendation of Joy Naifeh, Election Board Secretary to Mid-West Printing Co. Bids received from Midwest Printing Co. and Rural Printing; Tulsa County was a no bid. Naifeh stated that Mid-West has better printing. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Smith - Aye.

Item #7: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Warner to award Bid#21-10 Commonly Used Items to Merrifield Office Supply. The Board evaluated the submitted bids. Jana Thomas, Purchasing Agent presented spreadsheets of all 5 bidders, I have broken that down to the two overall better companies Merrifield and Admiral Express. Admiral Express did not bid all items and had alternates in the preferred items, instead of our preferred items. I have taken the two and compared them apples to apples, Merrifield appears to the best overall vendor. The Board reviewed all information and agreed, it appears that Merrifield is the best overall and they are a local vendor. Warner asked that in the future the bid be separated out by office supplies and janitorial, so we can evaluate each category and possibly award to two separate companies if need be. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Smith - Aye.

Item #9: DISCUSSION ONLY/NO ACTION to consider implementing procedures for the expenditure of the Creek County Fire Departments Sales Tax Fund. Mortazavi stated our Office has reviewed the Policy and requested some additions and changes, this information has been sent to Jana Thomas, Purchasing Agent to complete. Does the Board have any additional requests or comments? Warner stated he had reviewed what had been previously emailed and did not have anything at this time. Stephens announced the Purchasing class will be held on Thursday, June 17, 2021 and at this time maybe we might have some more input from the Departments. I think we should hold off a week before action is taken. Mortazavi stated at this time we have ten of the fifteen that have confirmed they will be attending the purchasing class. There was discussion of the requirements within the Resolution being fulfilled. Mortazavi stated as of today, I have not received any information that is detailed in Resolution. There was discussion of what needed to be turned in to the Clerk's Office before July 1, 2021. There was discussion of the Creek County Fire Association defining "Good Standing and providing a certification of departments being in such. There will be additional policy information filed in the Clerk's Office as well, stated Andrew Goforth, Assistant District Attorney. This information/language was lined out in the first request for sales tax to the Board. It isn't something new, they have had the information. Stephens stated he will reach out to the Association and see where they are on the information. There was additional information discussed if a department is not within good standing, the County would then hold the monies, until such time the department could come within the good standing definition. This item will be back on next week with the final proposed policy.

Item #10: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Warner to pass for one week until 6-21-21 for Andrew Goforth, Assistant District Attorney to clarify project/repairs and make changes to presented resolution establishing a process for repairs and construction projects for public buildings for all county entities. Stephens stated with some of the current issues of not having contracts and other departments handling repairs/projects and then asking Glen to come and check to make sure the repair/project is complete. Some of this Glen had not been involved in on the front side. This would help with the overall process with Jana and Glen. In the past we just have everyone doing their own thing and not one watching over the whole project, this has caused issues. Example the Jail and the electric, it could have been avoided if a contract had been in place. There was discussion of the proposed process and how it would only be projects falling under Title 61.  Joe Thompson and Leon Warner expressed concern with the definition of what is a project/repair. Mortazavi stated that it would be Title 61 projects/repairs and not maintenance. Thompson stated this then would create a lot of work for Glen that we operate and repair 24/7. Mortazavi asked does all of your maintenance now come before Jana before you have it repaired. This would not be for your maintenance it would be Title 61 projects to Public Building or construction of Public Buildings. Thompson discussed how much their maintenance personnel repairs and his concerns with Glen and Jana reviewing it all. Goforth stated this would allow Glen to track warranties, contracts and repairs, so that we are not repairing or replacing something that is under warranty. This has almost happened previously with the Fairgrounds. Stephens stated we are not trying to micro-manage anyone's office, but we have a duty to protect County Funds and to know what is going on with the County assets. This is overall better for the County to have in place. There was additional conversation on clarifying the definition and placing the agenda item back on next week. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Smith - Aye.

Item #11: DISCUSSION ONLY/NO ACTION hiring additional personnel for Emergency Management. Stephens stated with the move of Jana and the ARP monies and now the Fire Departments coming on. Covey is needing help with the Emergency Management side. Stephens presented the Board with a draft of job descriptions, and asked that the Board review and add anything they see fit. There was discussion of the annual pay being around $40,000.00. Warner asked if additional Emergency Management training would be required, Covey Murray, Emergency Management stated yes, there is additional classes that will be required from OEM and NEMS. Stephens stated this would be a good move in allowing an additional backup for Glen and Covey. There was more discussion of the position being full-time and possible help with the grant side as well. Stephens stated if anyone has additional correspondence about duties, to submit them to Dana and she will compile the final job description. Warner stated he would like to compare to previous job descriptions as well.

Item #12: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Smith to sign Inter-Cooperative Agreement with the Township of Lawrence Creek in District #2. Warner stated they have some upcoming projects that they may need our assistance on, we want an agreement on file. The town is approved to receive ARP Funds, there was discussion of Lawrence Creek being one of the non-entitlement towns/cities for ARP money. This will be renewed again in July, stated Warner.
