Alfalfa County to review employee health insurance
September 4, 2019
The Alfalfa County commissioners had a little more on the agenda Monday than those of weeks past. The three men (Jay Hague, Stan Tucker and Marvin Woodall) kicked off the meeting at 10 a.m. and began by taking care of the routine items of business (minutes from last week’s meeting, maintenance and operation payment warrants, appropriations, and blanket purchase orders). The monthly officer reports and highway expenditures were accepted as well, along with the allocation of the alcohol beverage tax. In road crossing permits, District 3 accepted two for a total of $4,500.
Next, the commissioners welcomed Blane Wood, a representative with OPEH&W Insurance. Wood gave an extensive, informative presentation on the benefits and services OPEH&W offers. He said switching to his insurance company could possibly save Alfalfa County up to $50,000 year. The commissioners agreed to review the information. No action was taken.
The three decided to also take no action on an agenda line item calling for discussion on the OMMA (Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority) Certificate of Compliance and/or Resolution for Designation of Officials for requirements. With no previous knowledge on the subject, the men cited more information was needed before any action could take place.
Other items approved by the commissioners were:
• A private property access easement for District 3 (NW/4 23-25-9) for backfilling dirt due to a washout.
• The declaration of surplus for a 1973 Hyster Packer (Inv. no. 320-300 Serial no. A91C2218T) from District 3.
• The county clerk to publish the above item for public auction.
• Sick leave donation of 40 hours from one county employee to another.
