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 Smith to approve purchase of one 7.5-ton HVAC roof top unit for $11,217.00 and repair one 7.5- ton HVAC roof top unit, for $3,203.00, total repair $22,434.00, at the Health Department per recommendations of Anna Stringfellow to Shoemaker Mechanical, as per Title 62 O.S. § 101-138. Stingfellow spoke to the Board, we have received three quotes from Shoemaker Mechanical, Ace Air Inc., and Airco Service.Com. Two of the quotes are estimates, that may require additional costs. Shoemaker is the total cost; they are the company we use. I recommend Shoemaker as the repair company, they also have an A+ rating on the BBB, as the others do not. Stephens stated Shoemaker is not the lowest bidder, but Stringfellow has provided the reasoning with not going with the lowest quote, but the best quote. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Smith - Aye.
Item #8: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Smith to Accept Bid#21-09 June Tax Resale and award per recommendations of Don Engle, Treasurer to Creek County Abstract for $66.00 per parcel, bid is good until 12/31/21. Creek County was the only submitter. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Smith - Aye.
Item #9: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Smith to sign Resolution#2021-14 authorizing and directing the calling and holding of a special election in Creek County, Oklahoma, for the purpose of submitting to the registered, qualified voters of said county the question of levying and collecting a perpetual one-sixth of one percent (.1667%) sales tax for the purpose of distributing equal shares of collection to all Creek County fire departments with their main station located in Creek County that maintain status of "member of good standing" with Creek County Fire District Association. The collected sales tax monies shall be used for apparatus acquisitions or upgrade and maintenance for existing apparatus, equipment, safety gear, operations, planning, training or training related expenses, new building construction or improvements on existing facilities to be held on April 6, 2021. The 15 departments that will collect equal shares if conditions are followed will be: Bristow, Depew, Drumright, Freedom Hill, Kiefer, Kellyville, Mannford, Milfay, Mounds, Oilton, Olive, Sapulpa, Shamrock, Silver City and Slick. Stephens stated that the Volunteer Fire Departments have put countless hours of work getting this ready to go out for a vote of the people. The funding would be able to be used for everything except payroll, the use is listed in the language read. Warner stated it is much needed and I have spoken to many Volunteer Fire Departments and we are one of the few counties that doesn't have the public support to fund them. It is greatly needed and I highly support the passing of this, I recommend that we move to the vote of the people to determine the outcome. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Smith - Aye.
Item #10: Motion was made by Smith and seconded by Warner to approve contracting with Dunham Asphalt using 6 Month HWY/Materials Bid#21-7 prices on a two-inch overlay on 6/10ths of a mile of Maple Drive, in Kellyville, OK. Smith stated the road needs smoothed up and I think this is the way to go. Stephens stated with the recent City of Kellyville approval of a new housing addition off Maple Drive, the road needs to be able to sustain high traffic. A 4" overlay is needed in my opinion, to hold up the traffic that is going to be driving it developing the addition. Stephens stated Jana Thomas, Purchasing Agent has been working on getting this project ready, we have Dunham quoting $53,240.00, they have lowered the bid cost to $60.50 per ton, waived the $1,500.00 locating fee and are going to grind some of the road down at no charge. With some of the possible thin spots, I would like a 15% contingency added to the purchase order just in case for the unforeseen. Dunham has projected 880 tons, but with the irregularities of the road, it may take more. Thomas stated that this is not going out for sealed bid, due to being able to utilize the 6-Month Bid on services, which has already been let. Dunham price for District #3 was $66.50, per ton and they are lowering to District #2 bid price of $60.50, per ton. Bonds are still required with this project and will need to be received before going into contract with vendor. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Smith - Aye.
