Alfalfa County extends burn ban seven more days
March 23, 2022
Monday's heavy rain was much welcomed by the Alfalfa County commissioners, but it wasn't quite a reason enough to lift the burn ban.
Last week, Mike Roach, Jay Hague, and Marvin Woodall voted to enact a seven-day burn ban due to powerful winds and dry conditions. Erring on the side of caution, the three men chose to do the same for the next week. (If conditions improve, officials can remove the ban earlier.)
Commissioners reviewed other paperwork, signing approval on the previous meeting minutes, purchase orders, and maintenance and operation warrants for payment. After that, they signed a resolution for the American Rescue Plan Act fund allocation and moved on to open a couple of envelopes containing sealed bids. The bids were for cover materials. Martin Marietta was a no-bid, and the other, from Dolese Brothers, was accepted.
A detention transportation claim for FY 2022 (for Feb. 2) received signatures, and then the commissioners made a couple of changes on requisitioning and receiving officers. First they approved the request to remove Kelly Stein and add Stephanie Jantz as requisitioning officer for the Alfalfa County Election Board, then they removed Jantz as receiving officer to add Shantel Kaminskas as a receiving officer for the election board.
Paperwork for the administrative settlement for JP no. 30436(04) Project #West Clay Creek was signed, along with a declaration of surplus for a 1981 GMC Fire Truck (Serial no. 1GDM7D1G6BV583112). That fire truck is going to a public auction at 10 a.m. on April 9 at the Burlington Annual Live Consignment.
Lastly, the commissioners signed a State of Oklahoma Department of Transportation Supplemental and Modification Agreement No. 2 for Project no. STP-202D(063)CI, State Job no. 31127(04)(05)(06)(07).
