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 approve authorizing the placement of a QR code sign on the north door of the Courthouse for the downtown historic walking tour. Cindy Lawrence spoke to the Board; we are promoting a walking tour of our downtown buildings. This allows visitors to learn the history of our buildings and if they want further information, they can visit the historical society. Stephens stated this is a great idea, there are so many visitors from out of state and other countries that come to our Route 66. This gives them an option to walk through downtown and learn about our buildings. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

Item #8: DISCUSSION ONLY/NO ACTION on presentation by the Town of Mannford for sewer and water project using ARPA funds. Gerald Haury, Town Administrator spoke to the Board. We would like to first thank you for this opportunity, after our first submission projected costs of $1.2 million and then finding out that the county was only giving roughly $200,000.00 to approved entities projects. We have revised our request due to the Town not being able to fund the rest of the first project. We have submitted that request on Friday, totaling $3.6 million, along with utilizing ARPA monies from our town and the Counties help we can do rehabilitation of existing water standpipe bringing it into current standards. This tank provides to 3,252 people and approximately 194 households. We have hired Garver Engineering to assist with the project, we would start project in the fall with Board approval. Stephens stated with this not being the same as the first request and not having supporting documentation of resolution and town minutes showing approval, I think we need to take a step back and start over. You need to submit this, along with the additional request and supporting documents to have the study group review, as well as Barbara Albritton, INCOG Representative. Also, reach out to Albritton and make sure you have everything required, then this will come back to the Board for possible approval. Albritton requested that the information be submitted to the ARPA2021 email and she acknowledged that this was submitted on Friday, and the Town of Mannford has not had the time to approve in a town meeting. Stephens stated we want to make sure that you meet all criteria that is required on our part, before it can be approved. Haury thanked everyone for the opportunity and we will work with Albritton.  

Item #9: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse to sign Resolution#2022-70 correcting Resolution#2022-64-CCPP-2021-03 Rustling Oaks II Phase I due to scrivener's error.  Wendy Murray, Planner stated that the legal on the first resolution had a paragraph left off the top, it still did describe the whole track in the body of the legal. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

Item #10: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse to award Bid#22-14 One or More New 1.5 Ton or larger Brush Trucks with lease purchase financing to Banner Fire Equipment for $145,174.73 and leasing from Welch State Bank option five annual payments in the amount of $32,257.91 per recommendations from Bristow Fire Department and Depew Fire Department. Whitehouse asked what the lead time was, Chief Conkling stated there is a fourteen-week lead time on the chasey. We have been told they are getting four trucks, so hopefully it will all come together within that timeframe.  Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

Item #11: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse to award Bid#22-15 Used Railroad Tank Cars to Hassara Culvert and Contracting Inc. and The Railroad Yard upon cost and availability at the time of need. Stephens asked if the bid can be awarded to both vendors and then the district can call at the time of need and see if it is available and if it is the cheapest. Andrew Goforth, Assistant District Attorney stated that both vendors stated that at the time of purchase you can call and have them check current steal prices, this could result in the product being cheaper than quoted.
