Woodward, Okla. — Woodward County Commissioners next weekly meeting will be held Tuesday as county offices will be closed Monday in honor of Martin Luther King Day.

During the meeting, the county board will hold a public hearing on a request from the Braun Family Trust to rezone a tract of land from agricultural to industrial.  The land is located northeast of the West Woodward Airport.

After listening to any comments regarding the proposed rezoning, the county commissioners will take a vote on the matter.

In other action, the county board will entertain an information request from Doug Eagon in regards to a contract between Architects in Partnership and the Board of Woodward County Commissioners.

The commissioners will also decide whether to approve the sheriff’s annual commissary report.

Purchasing agent Wendy Dunlap explained that the Woodward County Jail contains a commissary where prisoners can buy snacks like gum or candy. The report shows how much money is in the account, which is used to keep the commissary stocked.

The board will also consider the county cash fund estimate of needs and request for appropriations for the month of January as well as the allocation of alcoholic beverage tax for January.

The commissioners meet at 10 a.m. at the Woodward County Courthouse.
