Brief agenda set for county commission

Woodward, Okla. — A very brief meeting is in store for Woodward County commissioners next week.

The major item on the agenda is a re-signing of engagement letter with DR Payne and Associates, Inc. to account  a name change of expert witness in the Nextera Energy Resources vs the District Court of Woodward County.

Purchasing agent Wendy Dunlap explained, "Nextera Energy Resources-Sooner Wind LLC is suing Woodward over a property tax dispute. This is to change Woodward's expert witness."

Dunlap was unable to provide the name of the new witness or reason behind the change.

After this issue, it's all business as usual with the commissioners addressing monthly county officer reports and blanket purchase orders.

The county commission will meet at 10 a.m. Monday, Feb. 11, in the county courthouse.
