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 Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to accept petition from S. 231st Drive Rural Road Improvement District and sign Resolution#2020-112 setting public hearing for October 13, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. and directing the County Clerk to give notice once a week for two weeks. Andrew Goforth discussed the process of the Rural Road Improvement District, there are 14 properties involved in this petition. Within the public hearing we will determine the boundaries being requested, a map has been submitted, but we work on getting clarification of the requested, through the Planning Office. The election process was discussed with the residents in attendance, the county will work on getting upcoming election dates, within the percent needed.  Warner asked how long is the portion of road being requested, residents stated that it is 9/10 of a mile. Warner asked if they are looking at gravel, chip seal or asphalt. Residents stated that we are just needing help with gravel and maintenance, we have paid a lot in property taxes and are not getting our road maintained. Stephens explained that none of your property tax money collected goes to work on roads, 78% go to the schools and then other entities and county receives some. Our monies to work on roads come from motor vehicle tax, gasoline tax and 1/3 cent sales tax. And we cannot legally spend those monies on roads that are not maintained by the county. Creating a RRID is the next best option for maintenance and help with manpower on your road. When the process is complete you will just have a yearly agreement with the county, this allows you to purchase the product and have the county employees help with equipment and manpower laying it down. Other towns, cities and schools also have this avenue. The other option is to bring the road up to county specs and petition the board to accept it on their maintenance system. Resident stated that we done that about 30 years ago, the Commissioner went through the process of special assessment and was waiting on a District Attorney opinion, before moving forward. Nothing ever happened, Goforth stated I have gone through the file and do not see any request for an opinion. Goforth and the Board discussed the statues for the RRID and the requirements they will have to keep on their part, once this first part is done, it will be a lot easier in the future.  Warner stated before the hearing, we will get with the Election Board and have some dates of upcoming elections, we can discuss. There was discussion of what paper the Clerk should publish in; it was determined that the Sapulpa Herald would be the best option. Vote as follow: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

Item #11: DISCUSSION/NO ACTION on discussion and possible action to consider using the ACCO deductible fund to pay for damages to an 84" pad foot roller for District #2. Warner stated this item has been taken care of and no action is required.

Item #12: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to sign Resolution#2020-113 amending and clarifying the County's Cares Act Relief Fund Procedures and directing the funds to the COVID FUND 1565-1-2000-2005 and to be expended  on payroll for October, November and December for public safety, public health, human services, and similar employees, using the new US Treasury guidance dated September 2, 2020 and the State Auditor's guidance dated September 10, 2020. This item was discussed by the Board and the rules keep changing daily on the procedures. We now have to track the money that is received and spend it on covid related items. The state has allocated $77.00 per capita for Creek County, which equals $2.6 million dollars. Jennifer Mortazavi stated, we have submitted $117,581.27 and have received a little over $89,000.00, so far. You have asked that we gather information on payroll expenditures for Sheriff, Jail, Juvenile Detention, Dispatch, Highway and Emergency Management. From the reports July payroll was $624,874.84, August was $615,498.63 and we are working on Septembers. July, August and previous received totals $1,357,954.74. Stephens stated we will submit for salaries from July-September and then we can use them for October - December to pay salaries within those departments. Warner stated I want to get all the money that is available and then get all the current rules, as to how and what the funds can be used for. Stephens stated that we are legally submitting for qualified expenses and we can pull of three months' worth of payroll legally. There was discussion of payroll reports for highway needing to be turned in today, so that information can be gathered for submission by tomorrow. Andrew Goforth, Assistant District Attorney discussed the three options, for the monies per the Auditor's guidance, as of September 10, 2020. We have $89,000.00 roughly that will be placed into the COVID Fund and can only be expended on COVID related items and this has to be done before December 30, 2020. We have to follow the US Treasury guidance issued, as this is restricted funding. Mortazavi stated that I believe this is a true reimbursement and doesn't have to be re-spent on COVID related items. Now, I see that if you where to project that you are going to spend money on something COVID related, but this is a true reimbursement. Goforth stated not according to the US Treasury guidelines. Bret Bowling asked about going back to March on payroll, as it states that you can. Is this something we are going to look at, Goforth stated no we cannot as we have already submitted for those months. Once our earlier decision had been made, we cannot unchanged it, we can only move forward with a new one. This all will be subject to a Federal Audit and part of the GAO, if we have submitted something incorrectly, then we can be liable to repay that amount and be sanctioned from future federal monies. The current presumption is that public health, public safety workers to State, local and tribal government responses to the public health emergency. Treasury has provided, as an administrative accommodation, that a State, local, or government may presume that public health and public safety employee meet the substantially dedicated test, unless the chief executive (or equivalent) of the relevant government determines that specific circumstances indicate otherwise. We have three different entities overseeing the rules and some contradict each other. Vote as follow: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

Item #13: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse to approve Utility Permit from Oklahoma Natural Gas Company per County Spec's for natural gas pipeline by boring, size of line 4" MDPE, to parallel Hilton Rd. approximately 1.31 miles S. and 1.97 miles E. of US-44 and Creek Turnpike further described as 1,882' W. of the N.E. corner of Section 29, T18N, R12E in District #1. Vote as follow: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

Item #15: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to extend Resolution#2020-87 one more week until 9/21/20. Covey Murray, Emergency Management stated we have 118 active cases as of today from 911, with 27 deaths. We are down from last week stated Stephens. Murray stated we have 112 old cases and 6 new this week and we have added 5 more deaths. Bret Bowling with the 911 reporting agency, I question the accuracy of the numbers. Just as an example, I have been following some cases and I know the person had recovered and they were still being reported on that site. Murray stated he has seen that as well, as others being on there past recovery and some that haven't even been on the site. Bowling stated that it is supposed to be by reported per address and I am not sure this is being done. Vote as follow: Stephens - No, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
