The Stephens County Commissioners have noticed that the Stephens County Fairgrounds has had a busy schedule and heard praise from two different groups who sent letters to the board.
In their weekly meeting, the Commissioners heard from two different companies about their products before passing on to the regular agenda items which were all passed with a 3-0 vote.
The board of commissioners approved the county officer monthly reports while approving several other routine action items before getting to bids for water tank for district 3.
Commissioner Russell Morgan, who is over District 3, looked at the two bids and wanted more time to examine the bids and put a motion to table awarding a bid until next week.
The Commissioners also approved a couple of donations to District 1 and did one final approval of a transfer of appropriations within the Fire Department/Nutrition Fund.
Morgan in his weekly report of the Stephens County Fairgrounds read in their entirety the two letters which were sent to the commissioners on behalf of two different entities.
He said that if they took time to write these letters then he felt it was necessary that the rest of the commissioners heard what they had to say about their events at the Stephens County Fairgrounds.
One of the letters was from the president of Marlow FFA who hosted another successful Marlow Winter Classic Pig show.
The letter stated that the staff always displayed a positive attitude and has a willingness to go above and beyond to ensure the event has success.
In the second letter, the ladies of ESA Sigma Nu wrote that they wanted to thank the staff for hosting another bull bash recently.
Morgan read in the letter that the staff of the Fairgrounds have made the event better and they take every request seriously and give great attention to detail.
The letter stated that the group is more than willing to host more events and credited the crew for a great job and thanked every crew member that helped.
The Commissioners then looked at equipment from Great Plains Kubota and adjourned the meeting.
The next Stephens County Commissioners meeting will take place at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday Feb. 18 instead of the normal Monday meeting because of the Presidents’ Day holiday on the 17th.
