Item #6: NO DISCUSSION of new business. (In accordance with the Open Meetings Act, Title 25 O.S. § 311(A)(9), new business defined as any matter not known about or which could not have been reasonably foreseen within 24 hours of this meeting.
Item #7: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Warner to approve hiring Mary Gannaway for outside legal services for Planning case CCBOA-372, Dan Newman. Stephens stated he has discussed the characteristics of the case; the contract is a typical one and has been reviewed by the District Attorney's Office. The Planning Office is good with the selection. Ms. Gannaway sits on the CCBOA, but she will be recusing herself just in case the case proceeds to court, she will also be able to represent it in court as well. If she has any procedure issues, she can discuss it with the District Attorney's Office. We have a blanket purchase order for $4,000.00, shouldn't be that much, but we won't know. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Smith - Aye.
Item #8: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Warner to sign Resolution#2020-84 repealing Resolution#2020-66 dated June 10, 2020, which directed the calling and holding of a special election in Creek County, Oklahoma, for the purposes of submitting to the registered, qualified voters of the county the question of levying and collecting one-sixth of one percent (.1667%)sales tax for the purpose of distributing equal shares of collection to all Creek County fire departments. Stephens stated the Fire Departments requested this election. This resolution cancels out Resolution#2020-66 calling for a special election, since there was no runoff with the primary, we would have to pay the entire bill for the election. The estimated cost was around $20,000.00, we are looking into moving this election to November possibly August's school board elections. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Smith - Aye.

Warner asked Farris to review the drafted resolution and see if she approves, Farris stated it looked good and we will provide the necessary signage. Vote as follows: Stephens - No, Warner - Aye, Smith - Aye. A motion was made by Stephens to pay the third deputy required to man the door for 40 hours per week to be paid out of the use tax account. Stephens discussed that knowing the resolution is in effect and hoping the Cares Act will reimburse, the Sheriff does not have it within his budget to pay for this person, it would be the right thing to do to offer to pay out of the use tax account. There was discussion with Joe Thompson, Under Sheriff on need per resolution, Thompson stated without reading the resolution there will be questions that will come up, but I need to discuss this with Bowling and we will have to get back with you on our plan of action. This item has a lot of discussion, first Stephens asked for a report from Covey Murray, Emergency Management. Murray stated we have 56 active cases as of today. We had a meeting with the Sheriff and Judges on Friday, they would like to have masks mandatory at the Courthouse and a Deputy at the door manning the door making sure each person entering has a mask and temperature to be taken. I will refer to the Judges to present their request. Judge Golden spoke to the Board, we are currently in a pandemic like we have never experienced before. We have required face covering in the Courthouse, since then we have found out that bandanas don't stop the spread of COVID, only surgical masks or N95 masks. We are here today asking that we take steps mandating masks to be worn in the courthouse. We are in a people's business; we are an essential service. With Tulsa having a huge surge in cases we have to do what is right to protect ourselves, our employees and the public. We are asking that we go back to one door access, masks and temperatures to be taken. We need to also discuss the disinfectant throughout the Courthouse and public areas, with Jury term approaching in October, we have to assure the public we are making it as safe as we can for them. There was discussion of Tulsa disinfecting multiple times a day. We have to remember that this can be transmitted in the air, we need to look at how do we sanitize the elevator, air vents and hallways. I will now defer to Judge Hake. Hake spoke to the Board. I have personally been taking temperatures in Bristow, I have turned away two people in the last two weeks due to temperatures over 100.4. I personally have been self-quarantined due to possible exposure. The problem is that the testing takes so long to come back that business comes to a halt. We have required face masks in the hallways in Bristow, if we can protect the employees and people it is worth the inconvenience of wearing a mask. I support the other judges. Stephens stated we have been working with the Sheriff's Office in trying to find a temperature taking machine, that can also be used as a metal detector for the future. Garrett Systems seems to be the best, they run between $3,000-$5,000.00. There was also discussion of purchasing a new sprayer that has a mist that can be used over all surfaces. The product states that it continues to work for 90 days, it kills on contact and deodorizes as well. This machine is being used in Canadian County, Casinos and the Whitehouse currently. This will be a positive fight in reducing the spread stated Stephens. We can clean the complex multiple times daily. Joe Thompson, Under Sheriff stated we will do what we to be supportive to the needs of the Courthouse, but we do not want to interrupt the quality services being provided to the building either with security. Warner asked the Judges what kind of case load would there be if the Courthouse had to shut down due to possible exposure? Judge Golden stated we will have back log; we have seen some of this with the Supreme Court Order. There just is so much business that goes on at the Courthouse from Quieting Titles, Divorces, Domestic issues, Juveniles, Marriage License that it would create a backlog and imposition the public as well. And some we are mandated to do in a certain time period. We are trying not to get to this point. Warner asked if this happened could someone go to another courthouse and file, Golden stated most cases are limited by jurisdiction and would have to be filed within that county. Emergency protective orders could be the only thing that could still go on, with an emergency one being grated from the Sheriff and then follow-up with us. Judge Farris and Judge Hammers both expressed the need for masks and social distancing within the common areas. We are partners with the Court Clerk and if they were unable to do business, we would either. Judge Hammers informed the Board on the number of people that can attend her courtroom at a time. We think by manning the door we can cut down on the number of people gathering in the hall and protect the public by requiring a mask. There was discussion of using the outdoor area to help maintain social distancing is not an option with the current weather. We have separated our dockets as much as we can and are using Blue Jean App as much as we can. This app also offers visitors a way to watch the court proceedings. Warner asked what happens when someone refuses or cannot wear a mask. Judge Golden stated we can make accommodation if needed. There was discussion with Stephens on language added to Texas mandate if it interferes with your health, physical safety or security you are not required to wear a mask. Judge Golden discussed the HEPPA and the misconception of violating this. Warner stated I agree with the wearing of masks, it not only protects us, our employees and the public, as long as there are options for ones that cannot wear one. We don not want to deny anyone their right to the court system. Stephens stated I do not support this, I don't want to push this on a healthy person, I think it violates constitutional rights, it is their choice to wear one or not. I will never support the requiring of masks. I think these are public building that you should be able to come into without restrictions. I would ask that you try and communicate with some that has a handicap on hearing, I cannot hear what you are saying with a mask and I am not able to read your lips. It effects a lot of people differently. I have listened to your point, but you don't want to listen to mine. Golden stated we can accommodate with sign language or whatever else we need to, we are not trying to discriminate against anyone, we are looking out for the safety of our people and the public. But as you know experts have said that wearing a mask protects yourself and others, so why would you not wear one. It just says that you only care about yourself. Stephens stated that is a stereotype saying that I don't care about anyone but myself. I take my temperature every day, sometimes more than once. Golden apologized that wasn't stated correctly. Warner stated that he disagrees with Stephens and thinks that masks are a good thing. There was discussion of the person manning the door could be reimbursed through the CARES Act, Mortazavi stated that it depends on whether the person is spending more than 50% of their time on COVID or may fall under other options, we would need some clarification from legal and Zachary at the Governor's Office. This would require documentation of time worked. There was continued discussion of Tulsa County Resolution, hours needed for manning the door and if an additional person would be required. Goforth had discussion with the Board on the Tulsa County Resolution, I have been taking notes through this conversation and can prepare one if needed. Warner asked Murray if the County could provide masks if needed by the public, Murray stated yes, we have 3-400. Stephens asked if we have the authority to mandate the Sheriff to man the door and but physical limitations on his office and tell him what restriction need to be added to the building. I would consider assisting in the costs of the person if this is passed. There has been discussion of a detention officer repositioning to this position. I just cannot burden the Sheriff with the full cost of the additional person. Goforth discussed the Resolution would detail the information needed for the Sheriff and the courthouse security is part of his duty. There was discussion of the courthouse developing signage needed for the public and phone numbers for services offered. We do not want anyone turned away. A motion was made by Warner to try and copy the Tulsa County Resolution making changes to fit our county, closing off courthouse to one door with attendant during normal operating hours, offering alternatives to folks to conduct business and what options they can access to start at noon today and Goforth to draft resolution. Stephens discussed why would you approve a non-existing resolution, we could recess and come back, give Goforth time to prepare and then approve. Goforth stated he just needed about 30 minutes or so to get it ready. The Board continued with other business.
