County to continue upgrading equipment

Woodward, Okla. — Woodward County Commissioners look to continue upgrading county fire equipment.

The commissioners are slated to open bids for hydraulic rescue equipment, air bags and accessories for the county fire departments during their regular meeting at 10 a.m. Monday in the county courthouse.

In other business, the county board will act on extending office terms for several persons on the Woodward County Free Fair Board.

According to the county agenda, the commissioners will vote to extend the terms of office for:

• Gary Nielsen (Dist. 1) and Martin Andrew Maher (Dist. 3) through Dec. 31, 2014 in designated Office #1;

• Ken Lively (Dist. 1) and Brenton Mayfield (Dist. 2) through Dec. 31, 2016 in designated Office #2; and

• Mark Clark (Dist. 1) through Dec. 31, 2016 in designated Office #3.

County commissioners are also slated to review financial items including the county treasurer's quarterly report and a surplus distribution from the Association of County Commissioners of Oklahoma's Self Insurance Fund (ACCO-SIF).

Routine items on the agenda include monthly reports of county officers and a utility permit request from AT&T for a buried cable line parallel to a county road off of Highway 34 about 2 miles south of the Woodward-Harper County line.
