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#2022-64 CCPP 2021-03-AAB Engineering approving the Preliminary Plat for Rustling Oak II Phase I, a proposed single family dwelling subdivision containing 47.67 acres more or less, containing 58 lots, 3 Blocks, and 1 Reserve located at S. 129th W. Avenue and W. 71st St. S.in Sapulpa.-Ashely Drake, Planning Office. this is a 47.67-acre tract, Rustling Oak II, Phase I has several lots with road frontage. The tract will meet all requirements in Light Residential. A TAC Meeting was held on 4/27/22 where the engineer was present to address traffic control, water run-off and water service concerns. Alan Betchan spoke to the Board about the new entrance off 71st as requested by the Board and concerned residents. We have provided a downstream drainage drawing identifying three points of location 125th, 129th and 71st where we will analyze fully in the comprehensive plan submitted with final plat. We will address pre-runoff and post runoff showing no additional runoff will be made from subdivision and added five additional lots. We have changed the original plat and add a declaration lane and are submitting an Attorney letter for your records. Stephens discussed if there are issues after the subdivision has been built, that would end up in District Court with residents asking for damages from the creation of more water runoff. There has been enough discussion and concern of this happening, I do not feel like an Engineer would put their license on the line to make this subdivision work. Betchan briefly discussed the meeting with Warner on the streets, inspection and possibility of turning over to the County. The original Rustling Oaks dedication of right-of-way and dedicating the street to the public was done, however, there seems to be some issue with the county not accepting them into their maintenance. The process of the county accepting roads was briefly discussed and the minimum requirements that the county has as well. Warner addressed the roads within the subdivision cannot withstand the construction traffic and how 71st needs to be the access point for that. Betchan discussed placing crash gates that will still allow emergency responders to access streets. Stephens suggested placing signs going into the subdivision, Betchan stated they can also provide notice to the builders. Residents Denise Witzanky, Sandy Barnard, Gary Box, Rick Hardesty, Chris Downs with the subdivision expressed continued concerns with traffic, water runoff downstream, private road flooding issues and bridge, winter weather issues and not having adequate sanding from the county, regrading 71st leveling it out more, number houses being built, limiting the number of animals and fencing requirements. The group stated they may hire a private company to analyze the hydrology report and would like to see environmental study done on the impact of Anderson Creek. Stephens discussed the county regulations and the process of new subdivisions within county limits. Mary Huckabee, Attorney Conner Winters spoke to the Board addressing concerns of her clients Ginger and Terry Spencer. I have submitted an open records request and still are missing requested information. We are missing the original application, exhibits, we have flooding concerns, water runoff concerns, we would like to review the plans for retention ponds, hydrology study, lot width of block 3, lots 4,5 and 9 and block 1 lot 9, access issues, public safety issue with fire access, septic tanks and floodplain plan being sufficient. We would ask that the Board pass this for at least 2 weeks, but would like a month to review and work with applicant. Stephens stated we received your open records request on Thursday. We are working on gathering information. There is a lot of information to provide and some will not be available until the final plat is presented. Stephens stated water issues were already addressed and have been a concern from day one. Betchan stated we have a letter stating the water company can provide adequate water to all residents. We are already adding two additional points downstream outside of the development area. Warner discussed the undersized culverts and the 71st traffic. Resident asked Betchan's firm assisted with the development of Teel Ridge in Sand Springs, Betchan stated yes. There are water pressure issues with this subdivision, we need to really look at this firms work. Betchan stated that is a City of Sand Springs issue, not the developer. Whitehouse asked if a drip irrigation system has been considered. Betchan stated no, we are just meeting the minimum requirements from DEQ and it would be up to each builder to look into. Warner asked that Betchan continue to have an open dialogue with the residents. Betchan agreed, he will be open to more discussion once plans and final plat are submitted for approval. Stephens stated this has been going on since November, Betchan has been on notice of concerns, it is highly documented in minutes and I confident they will do the right thing. Residents asked how they can receive notice on when this will be back on agenda or more information is available. Stephens stated leave your information with Ashley and she will add you to the mailing list. If there are additional costs, we can discuss the Board helping with that. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

Item #8: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse to a pass for one week discussion and possible action to consider using the ACCO deductible fund to pay for damages to a Sheriff vehicle due to vandalism, which occurred on May 22, 2022, in the amount of $6,466.40. Bret Bowling, Sheriff asked the Board to pass item for one week. I do not think the intent was for ACCO to pay for damages, instead to just notify them of incident. I will speak to my logistics department more than likely we will pay for damages.  Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

Item #9: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse to Accept Bid#22-15 Used Railroad Tank Cars for Creek County and pass for one week until 6-13-22 to review.

Item #11: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse to transfer $1,500,000.00 from 1301-1-0800-2005 GA2 Use Tax Commissioners FY2021-2022 to 1102-6-4100-2005 HWY M&O-T2-1 HWY $500,000.00, 1102-6-4200-2005 HWY M&O-T2-2 HWY $500,000.00 and 1102-6-4300-2005 HWY M&O-T2-3 HWY $500,000.00 FY2022. Stephens stated with the recent rain and weather occurrences damaging the roads, cost of rock, and fuel, I think the districts are in need of funding. Stephens stated we have $2.2 million currently, we like to keep it above $500,000.00 at all times. With the upcoming increases in asphalt, I think we could make a big impact on projects that would last a longtime. We have projects ready to go and we could complete, before the new price increase go into effect. Stephens asked if we have received the second traunch of ARPA. Don Engle, Treasurer stated no. Whitehouse stated it would be very beneficial to the highway departments for culverts, small structures and damages to roads. Bowling asked for clarification on the Use Tax and utilizing of that for carryover. Stephens stated we like to keep it at $500,000.00, but for budget needs it could go under that amount. Warner and Bowling discussed the increase in fuel, it has tripled in the last couple of months.  Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

Item #12: Discussion and possible action regarding the American Recovery Plan 2021 funds directed to Creek County by the federal government.

Ave from HWY 33 N. 2 miles total estimated cost $148,114.00 and W. 71st St. S. from S. 145th St. W. to S. 161st St. W. 1-mile total estimated cost $74,057.00. Project#1566-6.1-4200-4110(C). Warner stated these are two others with high traffic counts, we would like to complete. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye. (2) Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Warner to approve the use of ARPA Funds for hydrology reports from Guy Engineering for Bridge #74, NBI 02580, in District #2. Warner stated this is a bridge that has been closed recently, due to sub-structure falling apart. We need to see what the recommendations are to fix this bridge on a temporary basis. Stephens checked the balance of the Guy Contract and stated we have plenty remaining of the $50,000.00. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
