Item #6: NO DISCUSSION of new business. (In accordance with the Open Meetings Act, Title 25 O.S. § 311, new business is defined as any matter not known about or which could not have been reasonably foreseen within 24 hours of time of posting agenda.)

Item #7: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse to sign Resolution#2022-17 on Fair Board members reappointments as follows: Josh Enlow, District #1, Darin Toliver, District #2, and Pecos McNiel, District #3. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

Item #8: Motion was made by Whitehouse and seconded by Stephens to sign Resolution#2022-18 appointing Fair Board member Jeff Gilbert, to vacant seat in District #3, which expires in 2024, previously held by Josh Enlow. Stephens stated with the new district lines, Enlow who has served for over 18 years is now in District #1, instead of District #3. Enlow ran unopposed for the district #1 seat. Whitehouse stated he had a conversation with Enlow and we have recommended Jeff Gilbert for this seat. He has done a fantastic job and is very dedicated. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

Item #9: DISCUSSION ONLY/NO ACTION to consider purchasing one or more licenses for ArcGIS online accounts. Stephens spoke to the Board; the Planning Office has been looking into upgrading their current system. It was last updated in 2014, they have looked at this new web base licensing program, that opens up abilities within their office and training. District #1 had all GIS information entered, in a different program. I have looked at adding licenses for District #1 and I have spoken to Blick, with Guy Engineering, to see if he would be interested in contract work getting all of District #1 data, this could help on future grants, as well. He is recently retired and mentioned he might want to do some work to help out. I wanted to see if the other districts might be interested as well, prices range from $350 to $3,700 per user. The new program will help with mapping and 911 addressing. There are options for maps and other data, to be sharable and open to the public. Planning can have maps and other data that could give a live view on the new county website, as well. There are different options that can be added, at any time with this company. If you are interested or what more information, visit with Ashley Drake, she has put a lot of work into this.

Item #10: DISCUSSION ONLY/NO ACTION on discussion and possible action to consider contracting with Mission Critical Partners, LLC to receive GIS data maintenance regarding 911 data within the County and applying for a grant from the Oklahoma 911 Management Authority for the same. Warner stated this could go hand in hand with item #9. I have had several meetings with INCOG and Mission Critical on this contract on our provided GIS and the file from AT&T. We have a lot of discrepancies with our data, verses the 911 files. We should be at a 90% accurate rate for the system to work efficiently, 25% of our files have discrepancies. There are 25,000-line items that need to be reviewed and verified line by line, this is a big problem. Mission Critical has proposed to do this for us for a cost, or we might be able to do some inhouse with this new system and with assistance from INCOG. We still need to have some discussion of the contract proposed, maybe add not to exceed a certain amount if we have Mission Critical do the updates.  There was further discussion of the overlay being off and what might be driving the issue. There was discussion sometime back with the Assessor hiring an outside company to help with our parcel data, do we know where that is at. The Board stated no. We have to start with ratifying our boundary lines and working to see if there is a deeper problem, also we need to discuss who will maintain the data, once it has been updated. Goforth spoke about different geo referencing systems that could help with the data. Currently the data comes from NIMS software that the Assessor uses, then you add the GIS system and the adjustments in that data, there are multiple options within the new system that the Planning Office is looking at, along with additional tools that could assist in making the correct adjustments. We are currently waiting on the base layer data from Eagleview, that could also assist with the discrepancies. This item will be on a further agenda for discussion and possible action.

Item #11: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to use the Use Tax Account 1301-1-0800-2005 for payment of the counties upgrading website with Brooks Jeffery. Stephens stated it is roughly $19,000.00, we can use T-2 All or the Use Tax. Warner stated it would make more sense to use the Use Tax, as more than highway will benefit from the site. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

Item #12: Motion was made by Whitehouse and seconded by Warner to let for Bid#22-4 (1) One or More, New or Used Dump Trucks for Creek County to be opened 2-22-22. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

Item #13: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to sign Resolution#2022-19 surplussing three computer CPU's and three monitors INV#221.01, D221.02 and D221.03 for the Commissioner's Office and Resolution#2022-19A disposing of the same to be junked. Dana Logsdon, Deputy Commissioner stated these computers are from 2002 and not being used, we would like to dispose of them. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

Item #14: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to sign Resolution#2022-20 surplussing two I-Wave Air Scrubbers INV#D250-26 and INV#D250-27 and Resolution#2022-20A disposing of the same to be junked per document provided. Stephens stated these were purchased with CARES monies and when the Sheriff's Office's air conditioners were upgraded, the company installing the new unites was not aware of them, therefore disposing of them with the units. The company installing the units, was not the ones that installed the I-Wave units. Andrew Goforth, stated with the situation of the items being purchased with federal funds, we have to comply with part 35 of the grant requirements. We are to track the items purchased for 10 years. Since, the items were disposed of with the units, we need to document what happened for audit purposes, within the minutes and the surplus and disposal paperwork. Dana has a complete inventory list, in which we are in possession of 48 units, currently. It has been noted with any further units being replaced that the units be removed and placed on the new units. Stephens stated Glen Musser, was not employed as Project Manager when the units were purchased and was unaware, they were on the unit. Musser will be on top of it from this point on. Mortazavi stated I thought all departments were aware of the units they have, but moving forward Musser be in charge of it. Warner asked how much was each unit, Stephens stated $750.00 per unit.  Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

Item #15: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to sign Resolution#2022-21 directing the Creek County Treasurer to credit the Creek County General Government Maintenance and Operations Fund 0001-1-2000-2005/R2 with funds from the Creek County Court Clerk's Office Fund for reimbursement of utility payments, in the amount of $158.12, 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 #21: Discussion and possible action regarding the American Recovery Plan 2021 funds directed to Creek County by the federal government. (1) DISCUSSION ONLY/NO ACTION on request for ARPA funds from the Bristow Historical Society. Joe Trigley spoke to the Board and presented a packet of information. We are looking to do five project renovations. We have several projects that are in need of repair, we have provided cost estimates from 2020, that were given to us from an architect. The projects are the Train Depot, Frisco Water Tower, Chrysler Sign, Town Square and Eagle Catcher. Trigley went through the presentation, we have submitted a request to the state, as well. I have had conversations with Representative Hilbert and Senator Leewright, both stated if the city and county do not support the project, the state will not either. We are requesting $175,000.00 from the County, this would assist with Canopy, Display panels, Brick Amphitheater, Water Fall and moving the dream catcher. We are having fundraisers as well as reaching out to several big donors to help with renovations. Warner spoke about the current request process. We currently are focusing on water/sewer projects, we have not designated our next category. Warner asked Trigley if he had a time frame to have an answer. Trigley stated he needs to report back to Hilbert and get an update. I know the state will start releasing money in June. Stephens stated we are currently working on water/sewer projects and your $175,000.00 request is big, when we did not give this to the cities and towns which have major water/sewer issues. I am not saying we will not do something, but that number is a big number. Warner stated with the upcoming meeting on Thursday, the workgroup will review request. The workgroup reviews and recommends to the Board. The Board of County Commissioners make the final decision. Trigley and Warner stated they will be in touch. (2) DISCUSSION/NO ACTION using ARPA Funds on road and bridge projects. Stephens stated we are not ready for this item; districts are still gathering information. Stephens asked Goforth if he has any new information. Goforth stated no, not at this time. There are no new federal updates, I am still attending webinars on the Final Rule and should have them completed by the end of the month. NACO is still updating the FAQ section from the Final Rule. Workgroup will meet this Thursday at 3 p.m. (3) DISCUSSION AND NOTATION of receipt and transfer of Sienna Rapid Covid Test Kits purchased with ARPA funds for the Sheriff's Office. This is continuing cleanup, receiving and transferring to departments as requested. We have received item and it is being transferred to Sheriff's Office Project#1566-1.2-0400-2005-4, PO#4099. (4) DISCUSSION AND NOTATION of receipt and transfer of 2022 Ford Super Duty F-250 Truck purchased with ARPA funds for Emergency Management. We have received item and it is being transferred to Emergency Management Project#1566-6.1-2700-4110, PO#4396. (5) DISCUSSION AND NOTATION of receipt and transfer of four EMist EM360BP Cordless Backpack Sprayers purchased with ARPA funds for Emergency Management. We have received items and it is being transferred to Emergency Management Project#1566-1.4-2700-2005, PO#1121. Three sprayers had previously been transferred from Emergency Management to the Sheriff's Office. This is cleanup receiving and transferring from Commissioners. Murray updated the Board on the Foam Spray Rig; we are looking at a skid unit and one for the ATV. We are working with Jana Thomas, Purchasing Agent getting more information. Currently, the only department that has one is Beggs. This would be great for fires. Stephens stated I know this was a concern of Whitehouse's and thank you for giving us an update.

Public Comment: Covey Murray, Emergency Management spoke to the Board. Our current Burn Ban expires today, with the recent snow it still did not help with the current drought. I had received several calls over the weekend about individuals wanting to burn.  The next three days, we are not expecting any precipitation either. This item will be back on next week for further discussion and possible action. I will get in contact with the Fire Chiefs and see what direction they are wanting to go.

Adjournment: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse at 10:26 a.m. to adjourn and meet again 2-14-21. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
