Item #18: Discussion and possible action regarding the American Recovery Plan 2021 funds directed to Creek County by the federal government. The Board had two bullet items to review this week. (#1) The Board reviewed the External Application; it looks good to start with round one submissions. I think we need to wait until next week to define the date for forms to be turned in, once we have a firm date from Barbara Albrittion, INCOG. REAP Applications are due by October 15, 2021, however the INCOG Board doesn't meet to make a decision until November. I would like to work together with the REAP to have the most effect on the communities and the people within that community. The Board agreed the form needs to be available on the county website and CastleCom could help assist with posting, if need be, until we have a new one developed. (#2) The Board discussed the amount to allocate to water and sewer projects. Warner stated as I did a few weeks ago, with my percentages, I think we need to set aside roughly $4.5 million for the county's use, $3.5 for revenue replacement, per our current calculations, and another $1 million in Administrative/Premium Pay. That leaves $9.4 million to breakdown, we have already spent a little over ½ million. There was discussion of what the Board would like to see allocated for round 1, water and sewer. Stephens stated I think $1 million, Warner stated maybe even $1.5 million and then see if we will have a round 2. After, we receive the requests we will see if that number needs to be adjusted. A motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Warner to allocate $1.5 million dollars to water and sewer round 1 for projects. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Smith - Aye.

Public Comment: NONE

Adjournment: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Smith at 10:36 a.m. to adjourn and meet again 9-20-21. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Smith - Aye.
