Compensation for cell phone usage:  Commissioner Johnson said he wanted this item put on the agenda because he would like to be partly compensated for the use of his personal cell phone.  He reported getting numerous calls on his personal cell phone.

 

Clerk Reese said she asked one of the state auditors if this was allowable and after receiving her reply gave the District Attorney the auditor’s opinion regarding this topic.  The auditor said in an email to Reese there is no specific authorization regarding reimbursements for personal mobile phones and said it probably isn’t an allowable item for reimbursement.  The auditor provided statute references but then recommended taking the matter to the District Attorney for official guidance.  Reese said officers may carry a county owned mobile phone.

 

DA Hermanson briefly reviewed the email and quoted Oklahoma Constitution Article 15 Section 1 “Oath of Office”.  He also mentioned how this works for state employees and said he personally feels it’s not worth the hassle.

 

Commissioner Skidmore said he did not want to carry two phones and just considers the use and expense of his personal mobile phone as part of his service to his citizens.

Commissioners Johnson and Shanks asked Commissioner Skidmore questions regarding this transfer.  Skidmore explained that a portion was paid to set the pilings and labor.  He said he told RiverRidge not to build the bridge and Dist#3 would build the bridge in order to save money.  Skidmore noted approximately $16,000 was used to purchase materials.
