Item #15: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse to let for Bid#23-21 Hay Bailing/Mowing Service to be opened 5-15-23. There was discussion of this being the first time to let for this type of project. Andrew Goforth, Assistant District Attorney stated we have done this in the past without a bid, just took the best qualified vendor. Thomas stated this is the area outside of the maintained area of the Juvenile Justice Center located in Bristow, approximately 12 acres more or less. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

Item #17: Discussion and possible action regarding the American Recovery Plan 2021 funds directed to Creek County by the federal government. Stephens went over the remaining funds available within 6.1 and other categories. We have approximately 5,399,006.59 left in General Revenue to be expended. And 2,471,815.58 that could be spent in other categories. I think we start looking a bigger ticketed items that can be completed quickly within the timeframe. I do not think we have time for another round of sewer and water, just from the current timeframe of the seven we are working with and none being completed yet. We still have several that haven't let for bid yet. The Ambulance Service has expressed the need of some new ambulances that we might look at. There was discussion of the ARPA Committee getting together to review the list of possible applicants and see if their need still applies to current rules. Possible applicants discussed was Caring Community Friends, Youth Services of Creek County, Bristow Historical Society, Fire Department, Taneha, and Turnkey. The Committee will need to review the requests and see what category they might fall under and then we can present to the Board. Stephens discussed using another $3 million of 6.1 for the County District Roads, we were able to make a big impact with the first round and I think this would benefit all citizens to continue this. The previous process was very transparent and each project was approved by the Board. There was discussion of Warner wanting to hold off on this project in hopes to have the money split more equally per road miles. Stephens stated this money was given per population count and we are splitting it equal between the districts. There was discussion of the district total road miles, population minus city limits and the amount of graveled/hard surface roads. Stephens stated he had spoken to Dunham's Asphalt and they would reduce the current price by 3% and waive the mobilization fee if the county did another big project. Stephens stated that the prices are going to increase in July and I think we should get started quickly to save some money and be able to make a bigger impact. Whitehouse stated at the end of the day whatever monies can be given to the district will be beneficial regardless. This other stuff is minor to me, if I am able to overlay another 10 miles of road, we have accomplished a big deal. Something that we haven't been able to do in a long time. We have been spending money on replacing some parts of roads and with this we can truly fix them saving us all money in the long run. A motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse to approve the use of ARPA Payroll Funds for Road and Bridge Projects in the amount of $3 million dollars to split $1 million per district and utilize the current bids. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
Public Comment: NONE
Adjournment: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Warner at 10:14 a.m. to adjourn and meet again 5-1-23. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
