Item #11: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to sign Project Completion Certification and Final Reimbursement Acceptance from the Department of Emergency Management and Homeland Security for FEMA grant #4299, project #45. Andrew Goforth, Assistant District Attorney stated this is the final closeout of the grant from 2019, we received the final admin payment, in the amount of $103.50. Stephens stated we have been waiting on this for some time. Jana Thomas, Purchasing Agent stated this grant is from September of 2019 and we are just documenting that we are closing the grant out. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

Item #12: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse to award Bid#22-6 One or More Self-Contained High-Pressure Water and Foam Fire Suppression Systems for a single unit for Emergency Management for a full-size truck per recommendations of Covey Murray, in the amount $39,100.00 to Light Em Up Emergency Equipment. Stephens discussed that only two companies met the counties spec's without altering the final performance. E.J. Metals LLC was the other vendor; however, they offered a ½" hose with 18-20 gallons and 1500 psi and 150' hose, no low water alarm and run dry pump offered. We asked for 200' of hose, they are willing to supply an extension piece. Light Em Up offered a ¾" hose with 18 gallons and 1500 psi and 200' hose, with a low water alarm and run dry pump. Murray stated they have reached out to E.J. Metals asking to see a unit here in Oklahoma, as well as a video of the 20- gallon unit. E.J. Metals stated they do not have a piece of equipment in Oklahoma and did not send a video, as requested. Rickey Mitchell, Light Em Up Representative for HMA spoke to the Board about the facts, data and science on his piece of equipment. This piece we have done research on with Beggs Fire Department and currently have two units. This unit can be used on structure fires, hydro carbon fires, wildfires with less water and has the extended knock down power needed with its ultra-high pressure. Mitchell briefed the Board on the history of HMA and its partners, HMA partnered with the Air Force on its design. There were two partners, which now one owns E.J. Metals LLC. Warner stated that Mitchell equipment is 50% higher than E.J. Metals LLC, if we took off the extras like the auto water, auto foam, low water shut off, we could be closer. Goforth stated this bid was not intended to eliminate any vendor, we need to hold this open to offer to the volunteer fire departments, we do not need to exclude a vendor. Thomas reviewed the bid specs asking that each vendor submit any differences and show how they are equal to and attach that information for us to review. Goforth stated we have five bids that do not appear to be apples to apples, although all might not meet the level that Emergency Management needs, we need to leave them open and we have shown them to be competitive for all departments that might want to utilize the bid. Goforth stated the fire departments need to review bid and possible lease purchase option as well. Stephens stated that Minute Manufacturing eliminated themselves by stating their bid is only good for 15 days. Thomas will send the bid out to the fire departments to see if they would be interested and report back within two weeks. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

Item #13: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to approve using the ACCO Deductible Fund to pay for damages to a Sheriff vehicle due to striking a deer on March 01, 2022, in the amount of $4,659.24. Stephens stated we need to be aware of the deductible fund balance, I think it is around $20,737.12 and ACCO likes to keep it at $75,000.00. So, when we renew, we will have to pay that difference. Mortazavi stated you need to make sure that is in the Commissioners budget request. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

Item #14: DISCUSSION ONLY/NO ACTION to consider purchasing one or more licenses for ArcGIS Online accounts. Stephens stated this needs to be passed out one week.

Item #15: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse sign Resolution#2022-34 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 $446.14, 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 #16: Discussion and possible action regarding the American Recovery Plan 2021 funds directed to Creek County by the federal government. (1) Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse to approve the use of ARPA Payroll Funds for a purchase of a single unit Self-Contained High-Pressure Water and Foam Fire Suppression System in the amount of $39,100.00 and approving the transfer $39,100.00 from 1566-1-2000-1110 ARPA 2021-Salary Commissioners FY2021-2022 to 1566-1-2000-4110 ARPA 2021-Capital Outlay Commissioners FY2022. Project #1566-6.1-2700-4110-3. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye. (2) Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse to allocate $3 million dollars of ARPA monies each district receiving $1 million each to be used on overlay projects or bridge projects and approve transfer $3,000,000.00 from 1566-1-2000-1110 ARPA 2021 Salary Commissioners FY2021-2022 to 1566-1-2000-4110 ARPA 2021 Capital Outlay FY2022. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye. The Board discussed the tracking of the project within KIT, we may have to alter the method once we get started. Mortazavi and Tandra McClellan suggested that we create sub accounts for each district within the ARPA account, so that the Clerk's Office can have checks and balance with Misty McCurley KIT program. Goforth stated he worries that the sub-accounts may interfere with the reporting, but we will not know until they open that part back up. Mortazavi stated I wouldn't see how, as the account number mimics the project number. A motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse to create sub accounts for each district 1566-1-4100-4110, 1566-1-4200-4110 and 1566-1-4300-4110 and approve transfer $3,000,000.00 from 1566-1-2000-1110 ARPA 2021 Salary Commissioners FY2021-2022 to 1566-1-4100-4110 ARPA 2021-D1 HWY $1,000,000.00, 1566-1-4200-4110 ARPA 2021-D2 HWY $1,000,000.00 and 1566-1-4300-4110 ARPA 2021-D3 HWY $1,000,000.00 FY2022. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye. Stephens stated we have plenty of road and bridge projects, I would like to appropriate $1 million per district to use on these projects, we would bring projects to the Board to be approved. I have worked with Goforth on a process, we have money in the bank and a lot of roads and bridges we could start making a big difference on. We could track separately within districts as well. Whitehouse stated a lot of our roads were overlayed in the 50's, this could benefit the citizens of Creek County. The Board discussed how much it cost for just overlay per mile, it is around $120,000.00, not counting all the prep work. Warner stated although this sounds like a lot of money, it could go very quickly on roads for bridges. (3) Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse to approve the eight projects submitted by Stephens 1. W. 171st St. S. Bridge-S. 145th W. Ave estimated cost $89,024.00, 2. S. 145th W. Ave, W. 171st St. S. to new pavement estimated cost $16,483.00, 3. Maple Drive W. 176th St. S. to W. 151st St. S. estimated cost $326,885.00, 4. Slick Road North End estimated cost $7,790.00, 5. Slick Road South End joint D1-D3 estimated cost $210,736.00, 5. W. 151st St. S. HWY 66 to S. 209th W. Ave estimated cost $33,662.00, 6. W. 151st St. S. Turner Turnpike to S. 257th W. Ave estimated cost $148,114.00, 8. Farley Drive W. 141st St. S. to Maple Drive estimated cost $45,068.00, total estimated cost $877,762.00. Project #1566-6.1-4100-4110(B). Stephens reviewed each request with the Board all are high traffic roads that are in bad shape and have been neglected for years. Overlay would be the best for longevity. Stephens asked Whitehouse on request 4, if he would be interested in paying $50,000.00 toward cost, since this portion is in District 3. Whitehouse agreed. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye. An amended motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse for District 3 to pay $50,000.00 on the North Boundary of Slick Road request #4. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye. (4) Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse to award up to $214,285.71 per entity for the seven entities that responded which include, Creek Rural Water #1, Town of Drumright, Town of Kellyville, Town of Mannford, Town of Mounds, Town of Oilton and City of Sapulpa, for water/sewer projects and for the group to reach out to schedule an in person presentation plan at a BOCC meeting as a prerequisite to purchasing or letting for bids with those funds, all purchasing will be approved by the BOCC in a public meeting. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye. Goforth updated the Board on Water/Sewer Projects, the workgroup met last week and reviewed the entities applications, we have received the second application on seven entities. Initially we had eight entities respond, to the call for projects, however Taneha has bowed out. We will work with Barbara Albrittion to make sure all entities are complying with DEQ requirements. We originally stated that the $1.5 million would be dived out as follows $88,000.00 to Oilton and $201,000.00 for the other seven entities. But Oilton has amended their request, as they have discovered that drilling a well is more than requested. So, we have decided that the $1.5 be divided by the seven entities, leaving $214,285.71 for each entity. All entities indicated they have local funds to complete their project requests. We will track each entity and help with gathering bid specs. We have three things to discuss today first adopt a dollar amount being $214,285.71, then plan in person presentations from each entity, document what they want to do and this will be within the BOCC minutes, lastly, we would schedule bid lettings and only schedule these when Albrittion can be present. Stephens stated the scheduling of bids how will this happen, we need Glen to be a part of this. Goforth stated when the entity is here for presentation they will meet with Thomas and Musser to review bid spec information. Musser then will work with engineers throughout the project. He will oversee the project and verify when it is completed.
