To open the meeting, the board approved adopting a resolution to accept a donation totaling $350 and a jar of pickles from Debbie Savage and Gracie Webb for the purchase of a K-9 Trauma Kit on behalf of the Stephens County Sheriff’s Department.

In the course of the meeting, the board also executed the 2020-2021 estimate of needs and financial statement for fiscal year 2019-2020 as well as approved three transfer of funds.

With the September monthly raise included for dispatch, an assessor, and jail employees, adjustments to disbursements funds were made in place for the fiscal year 2020-2021.

Then, the board acknowledged the award of $4,200 from Oklahoma Cooperative Circuit Engineering Districts Board (OCCEDB) for the DEQ Solid Waste Program to Stephens County District #1.

The board also approved the Emergency Management Performance Grant Program sub-grant agreement between the State of Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management (OEM) and Stephens County for fiscal year 2020-2021.

Commissioner Russell Morgan gave his report regarding the Stephens County Fair & Expo Center.

“Was down there Friday morning, they had a calf born — Saturday, that calf sold for $9,600,” Morgan said. “It was quite the thing — good event. Most likely we would get them back next year.”

In new business, the board discussed the property located at 1001 W. Elm, Duncan.
