JAY – The Delaware County Commissioners tabled a request from the City of Grove to enter into an intergovernmental agreement for emergency management at a regular meeting Monday morning.
The agreement will be placed on next week’s agenda.
In other business, District #3 commissioner Dave Kendrick will be purchasing a grader for the amount of $184,912.00 from Keystone Equipment, a company based out of Sand Springs.
District #2 Commissioner Bill Cornell rejected all bids received for a grader for his district after qualifying for monies to purchase the equipment through the state’s revolving fund. Bids will be resubmitted.
Wayne Krause, owner of Bernice Sanitation appeared before the board again to ask commissioners to issue a letter recognizing his company as a source for the disposal of solid waste in Delaware County.
Without the letter, Krause claims he will have to go through a process with the Department of Environmental Quality to hold public meetings throughout the county and the process could take up to 120 days. Krause said the letter would be a way to shortcut the process, allowing him to continue in business.
Should the board not provide the recognition letter, Krause claims he will have to raise the rates for his approximate 3,800 customers throughout the county.
Commissioners opted to review their solid waste plan to check the liabilities and tabled the item for one week.
In other matters before the board:
• Cherokee Yacht Club received acceptance for a mixed beverage license.
• Claims for payment to Rose & McCrary for engineering on the Hog and Carr Creek bridges were approved.
• The Sheriff’s Department will enter into a contract with Grand Lake Telecommunications for wireless internet service.
• The choice of an engineering firm for bridge inspections throughout the county was tabled for one week.
• The approval of a new subdivision known as “The Points Phase” was removed from the agenda.
• No action was taken on a motion to a quiet title case concerning a lot located at Cambridge Shores.
• No action was taken on a motion to enter into an owner/contractor agreement with the commissioners and Allied Roofing Systems for a roof on the Jay Community Center.
The next meeting of the Delaware County Commissioners will be held on Mon., Dec. 15 starting at 9 a.m. in the Commissioners Office of the Delaware County Courthouse.
