Ice caused the postponement of the Woods County Commissioners meeting Monday. Instead, the commissioners held a special meeting on Wednesday morning. Chairman Randy McMurphy was absent so John Smiley presided with David Hamil present to make a quorum.

Chad Budy and Monty Lohmann, representing the Woods County Farm Bureau, were present as the commissioners proclaimed Feb. 15-19 as Farm Bureau Week in the county. Budy apologized that the usual gift of homemade cookies was not forthcoming due to Covid protocols. Hamil said he appreciates what Farm Bureau does for the youth of the county.

The commissioners approved the following monthly reports:

Assessor, collections $185

County Clerk Office, collections $12,379.16

Court Clerk Office, balance $58,139.35

Court Clerk RM & P, balance $4,137.74

Election Board, balance $3,757.14

Health Department, collections $445

Treasurer's Office, balance $16,842.05

Sheriff's Office, balance $1,320

Board of Prisoners, expenses $3,779.03

The annual contract for Standley Systems for $441 was approved for the Election Board. The contract is for a copier-printer.

County Clerk Shelley Reed opened and read bids on two brush rigs and equipment, a 2009 Ford F350 and a 2013 Ford F350. The Snyder Fire Department bid $15,000 on the 2009 unit. Clearlake Community Fire Department of Beaver bid $30,500 on the 2013 model. Katie Blunk bid $30,000 on the 2013 brush rig or $35,000 for both. Harper County Commissioners bid $20,000 for the 2013 rig.

The commissioners awarded the 2009 brush rig to Snyder Fire Department for $15,000 and the 2013 unit to Clearlake Community Fire Department for $30,500.

A cost share agreement between the county, the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation and US Fish and Wildlife was approved. This will result in the county receiving $18,600 for the Avard Lake Project. Smiley said this will offset some of the costs for the dirt work and other expenses.

The commissioners also approved blanket purchase orders, warrants and claims.
