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 Transcript and Deed on property located in O.T. Shamrock Lots 25 & 26, BLK 5 that was sold in public sale on 4-25-22. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
Item #8: Motion was made by Whitehouse and seconded by Stephens to sign Resolution#2022-47 renaming the county bridge with the local identification number 178, located on Veteran's Memorial Road in Bristow, Sammy Dean "Tampy" Varner Bride and issuing a proclamation to this effect. Whitehouse stated that Mr. Sammy Dean had been very interactive with the Community, since 1983. He had the sale barn and the cattle production in Bristow. Skye McNeil and Melanie Varner is present here today, this is better sweet for two reasons. Mr. Varner wanted to see the new bridge finished and this was one of my dad's last projects, neither got to see the finished product. So, I think this is a great way to honor Mr. Varner, by renaming the bridge in his honor. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
Item #9: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse to approve the use of ARPA Funds for the Town of Drumright for sewer and water project, in the amount of $214,285.71 and create ARPA sub-accounts for the Town of Drumright, M&O and Capital Outlay accounts for tracking purposes and transfer $214,285.71 from 1566-1-2000-1110 ARPA 2021 Commissioners FY2021-2022 to 1566-1-74030-4110 Town of Drumright ARPA Water/Sewer Commissioners FY2022. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye. Mark Whinnery, Drumright City Manager presented to the Board five projects they would like to utilize the monies for. We have a need to rehab Curry Well that is currently off-line. This would benefit roughly 3,000 residents. We also would like to add a pump to the well, to assist with power surges and help the system run smoother. The well is estimated at being built in 1896, we are not out of compliance, but the well is off-line. We have received two REAP Grants $20,000.00 for each grant on this project. The electric and plumbing will be a separate project. Then, we would like to drill for a new water well, this would benefit the whole community. This would replace two older wells, providing more output than the two currently in working condition. Lastly, we have two sewer line replacements Ohio and Smathers and Bristow and Hickory that we would like to help the whole community as well. In closing as you see our city selected a wide range of projects. Warner stated they all fall within our guidelines and the County would be happy to help with the projects presented. Stephens stated this is a step into the right direction of project needs in excess of $18 million. We all have to start somewhere and this is a great start.

Fred Clark, Deputy stated that this is upgrading the antiquated system to a new one that will improve archiving and allow all campuses to be monitored under one system. We will handle this the same way we did with the Jail security system. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
Item #11: 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 April 17, 2022, in the amount of $14,906.35. Stephens addressed the increase of $125,000.00 for the deductible fund, that will have to be paid upon renewal. We have all used the fund, so we might have to look at how we are handling these once we receive the renewal. Mortazavi asked if this would be in addition to the actual insurance bill amounts, the Board stated yes. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
