Architect to share ideas for county fairground renovation


Woodward, Okla. — OTHER BUSINESS

Also Monday, the county board will a resolution recognizing the speed limit for all county roads as 55 mph, unless otherwise posted.

"The speed limit on county roads is already 55 mph," County Clerk Charolett Waggoner said. "This resolution would just make it official."

The board will also consider action regarding the appointment of Tammy Roberts to fill the unexpired term of current clerk Jenny Hopkins, who is retiring as of Oct. 31.

"Right now Roberts is first deputy," said Waggoner, "but she filed for the position of court clerk back in April and did not draw an opponent, so she'll be finishing up Roberts' term before she starts her own on January 2."

The appointment of a receiving agent for all 3 county district utility accounts will also be considered on Monday.

"The state auditor's office is requiring us to have receiving reports for our utility accounts," said Waggoner. "To do that they'll be appointing a receiving agent to sign receiving reports for utility accounts for Districts 1, 2 and 3. When the billing comes in, they'll review it to assure its a correct bill, and sign the reports."

The board also plans on considering a request from Northwestern Electric Cooperative for an overhead crossing of a power line of a District 1 roadway in the southern part of the county along the Dewey County line.  

Routine matters on the agenda include blanket purchase orders and monthly county officer reports from August and September.
