County officials make short work of meeting

Woodward, Okla. — Woodward County Commissioners wrapped up 2012 with a short meeting Monday morning.

The only action taken during the final meeting of the year was the approval of routine blanket orders and approval of the 2013 interlocal agreement with Circuit Engineering District 8.

District 3 Commissioner Vernie Matt said the board was basically renewing its previous agreement with the Circuit Engineering District (CED).

"This is the same agreement we've had," Matt said.

County Clerk Charolett Waggoner explained that CED is an organization set up through the Association of County Commissioners of Oklahoma and that the interlocal agreement with the CED enables county governments to cooperate with one another and pool their resources to work together.

District 1 Commissioner Tommy Roedell explained that the CED is in charge of conducting various county engineering inspections, such as bridge and road inspections.

Roedell went on to further explain, "There are 15 counties in the CED and each county has a commissioner that represents it on the board."

Roedell will succeed District 2 Commissioner Ted Craighead as Woodward County's representative on the CED board as Craighead retired effective Monday.
