Road and Bridge Projects/Circuit Engineering District (CED) No.8 Road and Bridge Projects:  Commissioner Shanks said crews were working the shop, hauled rock to Ranch Drive and completed 1-

1 1/2 miles and will do another 1-1 1/2 miles and hope to finish this week.

Commissioner Johnson indicated his crews were blading, hauling material district wide, trimming trees, replaced reflectors on head walls of bridges, stockpiling material, installing blades and sand spreaders in preparation for the winter months.

 

Commissioner Skidmore noted his crews have been hauling rock and shale to roads for the FEMA Project.  Crews have been repairing trucks and he noted he purchased a loader from the state surplus to use at the sandpits so they can begin digging sand.  Skidmore said all of the sand was previously washed away during the FEMA flood May 2015 and the district has not had any sand since that time.  He noted crews have been cleaning out culverts, picking up trash on the roadways and hauling it to the dump, grading roads when it is dry enough.  Skidmore said when it is dry enough crews continue to work on FEMA roads.  He also noted he had a lot of employees off with sickness and vacation this week. 

 

Interlocal Governmental Agreement by and between Grant County and Kay County with Grant County selling to Kay County 1˝” Crusher Run for $6.50 per ton from the Blue Lake Quarry  located at 11935 E. Canteen Rd., Newkirk, OK:  DA Hermanson said he had several questions about this agreement.  He asked if the cost and benefit changed and if it was on the six month bid list.  Shanks said the part that changed was the location from Grant County to Blue Lake Quarry. (Moved to next item for DA Hermanson to further review).

 

Quotes received for heavy equipment bulldozer and operator for Dist#3:  DA Hermanson said ADA Billie Chrz sent an email to Clerk Reese and Commissioner Skidmore recommending Skidmore come to an open meeting with a written plan for the dozer and operator which specifically states a MAXIMUM amount to be expended on the service.  Then the board can direct him to get competitive quotes.  Then these quotes will need to be accepted in an open meeting. 

 

No action was taken on quotes received for heavy equipment bulldozer and operator for Dist#3. 

 

Motion was made by Johnson and seconded by Shanks approving the following November 2015 Kay County Monthly Reports:  County Clerk; Assessor; Election Board.  Motion carried:  Shanks, aye; Johnson, aye; Skidmore, aye.

Interlocal Governmental Agreement by and between Grant County and Kay County with Grant County selling to Kay County 1˝” Crusher Run for $6.50 per ton from the Blue Lake Quarry located at 11935 E. Canteen Rd., Newkirk, OK:  DA Hermanson said Grant County who is the owner changed the location of where to get the rock (off the six month bid list).  The change of the location is an additional cost to the county.  Hermanson said he feels it is in the best interest of the county to sign this agreement allowing the site change but to pay a rate of current price.

 

Motion was made by Johnson, upon recommendation of DA Hermanson to sign agreement.  Hermanson then suggested the BOCC open under a current six month bid.  Johnson rescinded his original motion and no action was taken.
