DUNCAN — The outlay purchases for the county stirred up confusion and discussion among the Stephens County commissioners.

During Monday’s regular meeting, the Board of Stephens County Commissioners reviewed the outlay purchases, which included a helicopter dolly. District 2 commissioner Lonnie Estes said the dolly is used to move a helicopter without having to turn the helicopter on.

Dee Bowen, District 3 commissioner, inquired if the county owns a helicopter, “Do we have a helicopter?”

“As far as I know,” Estes said in response.

County Clerk Cindy Kaiser said a helicopter isn’t insured through the county, something Bowen said can’t be done regardless.

Despite the confusion with the helicopter and the related dolly, the commissioners approved the outlay purchases.

“I heard we have one, but I haven’t seen it,” Kaiser said.
