County leaders to consider burn ban

Woodward, Okla. — Woodward County Commissioners will consider the possible implementation of a county-wide burn ban at 10 a.m. on Monday, July 9 during their weekly meeting.

Charolett Waggoner, county clerk, said the agenda item was requested by Emergency Management Director Matt Lehenbauer after recent fires.  If the county meets the criteria a burn ban could possibly be implemented.

Sealed bids will also be opened for a new roof for the Woodward County Health Department.  Bids have previously been received for the roofing project but Waggoner said those bids couldn’t be accepted because of construction limitations.

The health department had originally wanted an A-line roof, but after bidding the project discovered an A-line roof is not possible due to air conditioning units on the roof.

Waggoner said she believes they are taking bids for a flat roof for the health department now to accommodate the air conditioning units.

An invoice from the County Officers and Deputies Association (CODA) for annual dues will also be discussed. Waggoner said elected county officials attend (CODA) meetings twice a year.

"The meetings provide speakers and classes for the different elected officials," she said.

The meetings help inform the elected officials what type of county government legislation is coming up and how it will effect their office, she said.

There is also a resolution disposing of junked equipment from District No. 2 inventory. There are several different equipment items, such as a chainsaw and pruner saw, that are worn out, Waggoner said.

Commissioners will also consider action on the renewal of the Kellpro Software License and maintenance agreement with the county clerk for Fiscal Year 2012 to 2013.

The board will also consider a request for payment of contract funds and monthly report for a Northwest Domestic Crisis Services grant.

Other agenda items include monthly reports of county officers for June, blanket purchase orders, and a resolution determining the maximum monthly highway expenditures for July.
