Commissioners approve June 24 primary election results

DUNCAN — Stephens County commissioners on Monday  approved the final results of the June 24 primary elections.

The commissioners’ action certifies that the vote was accurate and the election process was followed properly by the county election board.

In other business the commissioners:

 Approved a bid proposal which allows for the lease/purchase of two 400-gallon flat bed brush trucks for the Velma Volunteer Fire Department from  Midwest Fire Equipment and Repair Co.

During the June 30 regular meeting, the commissioners reviewed five bids and took the recommendation of Velma Volunteer Fire Department on which bid to approve. Midwest Fire had the third lowest bid, but firefighters Cody Ketchum and Monte Tadlock said the financing was the best of the bids.

Midwest Fire’s bid was $213,658. Bids were initially opened during the June 23 meeting, but tabled until the June 30 meeting.

 Approved rental and maintenance agreements for copiers for the district attorney’s office, the sheriff’s office, the assessor’s office and the OSU Extension Office through Standley Systems. These agreements cover copiers, maintenance and supplies.

A maintenance agreement was also approved between Standley Systems and Stephens County on behalf of the district attorney and the Health Department for copier maintenance.
