Stephens stated that he had a meeting Friday with Dunham's and there were some errors on the math calculations, there were more bad spots than we anticipated on having. I had built in a 10% contingency to the purchase order and the law states that I cannot go over 15%. I will know more today on exactly how much we are off, the cost was $59.50 a ton, so we are roughly looking at $84,371.00, which is under the 10% contingency.

Dana Logsdon, Deputy Commissioner stated we hired Ashley due to COVID and have additional cleanings throughout the complex and courtrooms. I had discussed this with Jennifer Mortazavi on the Court Clerk reimbursing the County 25%, since this is reimbursed by CARES. Mortazavi stated that we can submit this for reimbursement, however we cannot submit the whole salary, if we are receiving 25% back. We would need to deduct that amount. Stephens stated let's address this again the first of the year, I think this is a good use of a resource that we already have and the best use of the monies received. Let's not split this up yet and handle this on the county side, we need the additional cleaning anyway. Amanda Vanorsdol gave a brief description of the cleaning that is required for the court rooms, she will be deep cleaning once a month and provide daily cleaning of the courtrooms as well. The cost for the 25% reimbursement would be around $667.00 per month, as you know the State cut our cleaning budget. We do appreciate the extra cleaning, as the Judges do as well.

Item #16: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to approve Utility Permit from Oklahoma Natural Gas Company per County Specs for natural gas pipeline, by boring, size of line ¾" HDPE, to cross W. 71st St. approximately 2.81 miles N. and 0.41 miles W. of SH-97 and SH-166 further described as 967' E. of the S.W. corner of Section 2, T18N, R11E and the N.W. corner of Section 11, T18N, R11E in District #2.

Item #17: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to extend Resolution#2020-87 one more week until 10/19/20. Covey Murray, Emergency Management stated we have 166 active cases as of Monday, with 11 new. There was discussion of the numbers from the past week being 176 being the high, so we are down slightly. Warner stated we are still on the stratosphere with the increase of cases since phase III and IV have been in place. This may become the new normal. The Board asked Fred Clark, Deputy Sheriff if there have been any issues this past week. Clark stated none that he is aware of, things are running smoothly. Amanda Vanorsdol, Court Clerk informed the Board that they will be holding a Juvenile Jury Trial next week with about forty jurors. We will probably be down to just 20-25 that will stay for trial. We are working with Judge Sener and Farris on the best way to have the trial and keep everyone safe.  Warner stated I see no reason not to continue this resolution. Vote as follow: Stephens - No, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.

 

Public Comment: Suzanne Shirey, Sapulpa Chamber discussed with the Board on having a Community Tree of Hope this year, this would be a join project with the chamber and Mainstreet. The cost is $18,000.00 for a 26' tree, we are just in need of assistance from the County with putting up the tree, taking down and storing of the tree. We are working on the details to hopefully have the lighting of the tree with the lights on downtown. We are working with the local retailors to decorate and stay open for this event. People have been longing for this for years, but I think this year is the best time. People need some hope. There was discussion of the placement of the tree and the details on the storage was discussed.
