Chairman Vance Johnson called the meeting to order.  Those present were as follows:  Paul Skidmore, Member; Jason Shanks, Member; Brian Hermanson, District Attorney (DA); Christy Kennedy, Kay County Treasurer; Susan Keen, Kay County Assessor; Everette Van Hoesen, Kay County Sheriff; Don Jones, Kay County Detention Center Director (KCDC); Harold Hughs, KCDC; Dennis Bonewell, Emergency Management Director; Scott Cloud, Newkirk Herald Journal; Claude Williams, Taxpayers for Transparency; Sharon Rowen, Ponca City News; Tammy Reese, Secretary/Kay County Clerk.  (See sign in sheet).

 

Chairman Johnson led the Flag Salute.

 

Motion was made by Skidmore and seconded by Shanks approving the regular meeting minutes of May 16, 2016.  Motion carried:  Johnson, aye; Shanks, aye; Skidmore, aye.

 

Jail Director Report:  Don Jones, KCDCD, presented a report noting 270 as the current head count, 56 arrested and released over the weekend and 128 for the week, arrested and released from May 1, 2016-324, daily average of 234, minimum amount of inmates-211, maximum amount of inmates-279, high for 24 hour period for May 21, 2016-290, 10 inmates sentenced to county time, 33 inmates sentenced to Department of Corrections (DOC)/(waiting to go to prison) with a backlog at DOC of 996, Jones sated this has been going up around one hundred a week for the past month.  The report showed 10 weekenders and sanctions, 47 paid contracts with BIA and Bridgeway currently are holding three (3) inmates on writs (prison to court). 

 

Writs and transports with Kay County Sheriff Department:  Sheriff Van Hoesen noted out of the 10 Writs he has been discussing over the last several months, three (3) are still in custody.  Sheriff Van Hoesen presented a four paged report.  The first page listed three Writs by inmates name, mentioned their felony charges and the cost involved to transport them.  The second and third pages listed inmates returned to DOC, their total fines, court fines/orders and cost involved.  The last page gives total costs from pages 1, 2 and 3 for time/travel and housing.

 

Van Hoesen said he understands the commissioners have no control over the number of inmates in custody or how they got there.  He said from time to time the BOCC discusses jail costs; Sheriff said he wanted the BOCC to understand the Jail Administrator has no control over the number of inmates that are brought to the KCDC by the Sheriff’s Department or the many surrounding Kay County law enforcement agencies. 

 

Sheriff went on to say that these 10 inmates are not all that we have had this year.  Records indicate that already in 2016 we have had 38 inmates here on Writs.  In 2015 we had a total of 85 inmates in on Writs.  Sheriff said he wanted them to understand this is a costly way of getting convictions.

 

DA Hermanson responded that this is part of the Sheriff’s job.  Hermanson said he reviews every Writ filed in his office and the Sheriff cannot control which Writs need to be picked up.  He explained repeat offenders, reimbursement for this type of travel expenses.  Hermanson told the BOCC these decisions are “his” call.

 

BOCC asked questions regarding recouping the cost, etc. 

 

Motion was made by Johnson and seconded by Shanks approving Jackson Boiler & Tank Co. Contract (to service boilers, pump’s, hot water expansion tank, etc.) FY2016-17.  Motion carried:  Johnson, aye; Shanks, aye; Skidmore, aye. 

 

300 E. Fountain Rd a piece of property that Aeropres Corporation would like to donate to the county:  Commissioner Johnson said spoke with Aeropres and asked for them to send the environmental report.  He requested assistance from Phillips 66 to investigate the vessels and contacted DEQ.  Johnson said he wants to research the environment aspect as much as possible.

 

Treasurer Christy Kennedy said she has concerns about why they want to give it away instead of selling it.  She told Johnson she would provide him with statute language regarding the environmental issues concerning June resale properties.

 

Johnson stated if someone wants to donate a $70,000 piece of property it’s worth checking into; he said he wants to continue to check out and make sure there is no problems and pursue if all checks out.

 

Shanks asked Johnson his intentions with the property.  Johnson said the building on this property is nicer than the building he has on Bois D’Arc and mentioned he could possibly sell the Bois D’Arc property.

 

No action was taken.
