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.

 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.
