The Kay County E911 Authority, met in special session at 9:00 o’clock a.m. on Thursday, May 11, 2006, in the Commissioners Court of the Kay County Courthouse in Newkirk, Oklahoma.  Notice of the meeting was posted for public information on May 9, 2006 at the Courthouse front door, Commissioners Court, and basement handicapped entrance of the Kay County Courthouse in Newkirk, Oklahoma.

Minutes from Special Session meeting on March 8, 2006 were approved by members present.


Ronnie Freeman, AT&T, said “We are in great shape for the shape we are in.”  He gave percentages on accuracy and completion of addresses of subscribers, Newkirk-96.4%; Blackwell-94%; Tonkawa-97%; Freeman said he has concerns about Kaw City.  He also stated that addresses in the Master Street & Address Guide (MSAG) must be precise or they will not fit in Data Base.  Freeman, a member of the State Wide Advisory Board by 911 (30 board panel) mentioned they are trying to promote and assist with getting landlines for 911 across the state.  Educating, informing and helping the communities figure out ways they can get 911 going is part of the Board’s objective.


Chairman Bowers mentioned that Larry Tipps, NODA, collects and distributes 911 funds.  Blackwell and Tonkawa received a check on April 3, 2006.  Last month $20,607.00 was collected from wireless providers and another check should be received before July.  After the July imbursement, checks will be sent out on a quarterly basis.  Bowers stated that on a Contract dated September of 2004 it states that NODA will retain two percent (2%) of the remitted funds.  Bowers thinks NODA might negotiate on this amount.  Bower’s will contact Sally Norris, City Manager for City of Blackwell about KANOKLA/AT&T Trunking to select routers and a replacement for Marleda Humble, Board Member representing City of Blackwell, who is no longer employed with Blackwell Police Department.


Chairman Bowers reminded members present that the next meeting date will be August 9, 2006 at 9 a.m.
