Item #13: Discussion and possible action regarding the American Recovery Plan 2021 funds directed to Creek County by the federal government. Andrew Goforth, Assistant District Attorney spoke to the Board updating on the Treasury final rule. Three things changed that I will discuss briefly today, as I have not completed reading the final rule. Capital expenditures are now an authorized use, we are awaiting the new expenditure category list. This would require additional reporting and would take effect on April 01, 2022. We also have some reporting requirements this month, as well.  Next, is premium pay and the eligible workers with less than $71,000.00, in which we do not have any county worker at that rate and there are no reporting requirements. Also, water and sewer have some expanded project areas, as I review the work group will discuss. Lastly, the government services loss revenue (EC6.1) has a onetime $10 million dollar allowance or you can utilize the formula, as it previously had. Tandra and I have worked the numbers, I feel very confident that the $3.1 million calculated is correct. The Auditor's Office provided a template to plug the numbers in with and we get the same number. Stephens stated you choose the $10 million, that's common sense, this could make a huge impact to the county. (#1) DISCUSSION/NO ACTION on clarifying price change on request from the Sheriff's Office for 90 Covid Test Kits from 1/3/22 meeting. Stephens stated when placing the order, they were able to get a cheaper price with more test kits. They are now getting 6 boxes at a rate of $400.00 per box, they were approved for $2700.00, now the cost is $2400.00. (#2) Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse to approve the use of ARPA Payroll Funds for COVID Test Kits from TurnKey in the amount of $2,700.00 and approving the transfer $2,100.00 from 1566-1-2000-1110 ARPA 2021 Salary Commissioners FY2021-2022 to 1566-1-2000-2005 ARPA 2021 M&O Commissioners FY2022, we will use the previous transfer credit of 300.00 with this transfer for purchase #3. Project #1566-1.2-0400-2005-3. (#3) DISCUSSION/NO ACTION to consider using ARPA funds on road and bridge projects. Whitehouse asked if the Board has thought about a project plan from each district and have that reviewed by the Board. The Board discussed preparing a project plan to review and discuss what are the critical needs within the districts. We could collect additional documents under the capital expenditures, so they would qualify for federal dollars. Goforth stated we would need to provide the justification or harm of that particular road/bridge as part of the requirements and maybe include two alternatives of what would happen if the area is not fixed. With the 8-year plan, ODOT and the engineers you would have sufficient information to include with the submitted project. All, projects would follow the same state guidance rules. There was discussion of utilizing the 6 Month Bridge/HWY Materials bid. Stephens stated you would want to choose the ones that serves the most people. Any deteriorating roads focus in on the points of what will happen if it is fixed and what will happen if you just let it go. Whitehouse stated he has 180 miles of deteriorating roads and cannot justify any black top at this time. Stephens stated this would free up our local monies to work on the less traveled roads within our district. Whitehouse stated this could be a miracle for the county, definitely a game changer stated Stephens.  Stephens stated he will be looking at his less than 20'bridges and trying to make an impact on that as well. Stephens thanked Whitehouse for the agenda item. Goforth stated we will not receive our second tranche until May of this year, so we are only working with the $6.9 currently. We can leave this item on for discussion each week. Stephens stated he would like to give two to three weeks for each district to prepare their project lists and maybe recess from a meeting to discuss and review further.

Public Comment: NONE

Adjournment: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse at 10:10 a.m. to adjourn and meet again 1-18-22. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Anthamatten - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
