New vehicle for Mutual Fire Department

Woodward, Okla. — The Mutual Fire Department will soon add a new Chevrolet to its equipment inventory.

Acting on a recommendation from County Fire Chief Steve Day, Woodward County Commissioners voted Monday to approve the purchase of a 2013 Chevrolet 1-ton cab and chassis from Irwin Auto in the amount of $25,439.  The pickup will be converted for use as a fire truck.

County commissioners also took action Monday to dispose of some junked equipment from the county assessor's office.

"It was a camera they used in the field that they no longer use," County Clerk Charolett Waggoner said.

No one appeared at a public hearing held during Monday's county commission meeting to protesters a proposed annexation to the Quinlan Rural Water District No. 1.

The proposed annexation would allow 2 property owners in Major County to take advantage of water service from the rural water district in eastern Woodward County.

Now that a public hearing has been held, county commissioners will vote on the annexation at next week's meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 4 at 10 a.m.  County offices will be closed Monday in honor of the Labor Day holiday.

Under new business, county commissioners discussed the need to remodel the 2nd floor bathrooms at the Woodward County Courthouse.

"The women's bathroom really needs to have something done to it," Vernie Matt said.

There was no action taken on this, but the commissioners will be looking for quotes in the near future.
