On March 11, 2021, the American Recovery Plan was signed in the amount of $1.9 trillion dollars, $362 billion for Recovery Aide to State/Local Government, $65.1 billion to counties nationwide. Creek County according to NACO will receive $13,871,251.00 in two installments. The first, we should be receiving today, as this was the deadline to transfer funds, we will receive the second installment one year from that date. In April the County had to meet the requirements of the Federal Grant Procedures with an active DUNS number and have active Sams.gov account. Dana Logsdon, Deputy Commissioner will be the gate keeper, overseeing the monthly reports and reporting to Sams.gov, this information was also confirmed by NACO and ACCO. We are waiting on clear uses from the Treasury, this should be out in the coming weeks. Goforth went through the approved uses as it stands now, support public health expenditures, address negative economic impacts caused by public health emergency, replace lost public sector revenue, provide premium pay to essential workers, invest in water, sewer, and broadband infrastructure. If we misuse the money, the County will have to repay the monies spent plus nine percent interest. Warner discussed the 18% in loss of revenue for the Highway Departments. Bowling asked about the decrease in revenue with the jail and juvenile justice center, Stephens stated that through the pandemic the sales and use tax did not decrease, it went up, unlike our monies from fuel tax. Goforth stated all monies received must be spent by 12/24/2024, as we seen with the Cares Monies the uses may change throughout the process. SB858 was discussed, we are watching this bill closely. There was discussion of cities and towns being allotted funds on June 9, 2021, with population over 50,000. We have heard from the City of Sapulpa; they are wanting to be kept up to date of how the County is utilizing their funds and follow the same. Non-Entitlement groups were also briefly discussed, as we get more information, we will know how to handle this portion. The separate account for the funds was discussed with the Treasurer, once we have conformation from the Treasury that the monies can go into an interest-bearing account, we can have the Treasurer move monies over. There was discussion of the current Treasurer's Investment Policy and the Board needing to take action today on the direction given to him on funds we will be receiving. New Fiscal Year, he will then add of the funds and Engle making changes to his FY2021-2022 investment policy. Goforth stated I would suggest that this be a continued agenda item each week, until we receive all information. Don Engle, discussed with the Board different investment options, once we receive the final direction from Treasury. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Smith - Aye.
