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: NO DISCUSSION/NO ACTION on setting a date for a hearing on the merits and sending and publishing notice for the same for the county to maintain a section of publicly dedicated right-of-way connecting to and located south of W. 211th St. S. just east of HWY 66 near Bristow in District #3. Whitehouse stated this item needs to be passed, as they are still working on some of the deals. Stephens added that Whitehouse needs to notify Dana when he would like the item placed on the agenda again.
Item #8: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to pay Hart Designs $17,829.00 for sound system in the New Commissioners Meeting Room and to be paid from the Use Tax Account 1301-1-0800-2005. Stephens stated with the new room, it is difficult for the public to hear what is being discussed up on the podium. With us being so late in the budget year, I would like to suggest the Use Tax Funds, to help from hitting the General Fund and not effecting the Budget numbers. We are going to add microphones and speakers to help with the transmission of discussion. Mortazavi will be in charge of the IT side, as well. The Board agreed that this is needed and the Use Tax would be a good account to purchase equipment from. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
Item #9: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to cancel Bid#23-18 Lease Purchase of 1 or More New Custom Cab Pumpers for Drumright Fire Department. Jana Thomas, Purchasing Agent stated that we have two reasons for the canceling of this bid. One the newspaper did not have the publication scheduled within the timeframe requested. This would not give enough time for the bidders to have information returned. Also, Drumright has added a few items to the bid specs which could add additional vendors. Brett Lunsford, Drumright Fire Department stated we had the specs too vague, trying not to be too specific on our needs, so that we did not exclude any vendors. After reviewing and receiving phone calls from vendors, we decided that we needed a little more information within the specs. We have also added an option B for a Demo Truck for other Fire Departments. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
Item #10: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Warner to let for Bid#23-19 Lease Purchase of 1 or More New Custom Cab Pumpers for Drumright Fire Department to be opened 5/30/23. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

I would like you to review the information that Misty will be emailing and make sure that we have the correct bridge number, year built, length, and status so that we can submit the grant. I have found some errors in the current map. I would like to ask that you each review your Bridge Reports to make sure there are no corrections needed as well.
