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 call for applications for appointment of Creek County Treasurer position, the county will be accepting applications, beginning on June 19, 2023 and ending at 5 p.m. on July 07, 2023. All applications must be turned into the Creek County Clerk's Office at 317 E. Lee, Suite 100 Sapulpa, OK 74066 or emailed to The Board then will receive copies from the Clerk by July 10th, to review with possible discussion at meeting and then start the interview process on July 17, 2023. This application process will also be published two times on June 24 and July 01, as well as being published on the county website. Stephens spoke about the process for filling the Court Clerk position previously, in March 23, 2011. With this being a two-year appointment, I think the previous process was a good and made it fair and equal to everyone that wanted to apply. I think that we should not rush on this and try to see if we can come up with a couple of people to interview and appointment for term will begin on August 01, 2023. I think this is the fairest and most transparent process and the application process will be equal to all that would like to apply. The Board agreed. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

Logsdon also stated she spoke with Barbara Albritton, INCOG Representative about the radio, since they had been purchased from grant funds.
