Motion was made by Austin and seconded by Schieber approving regular meeting minutes of July 1, 2013.  Motion carried:  Rowe, abstained; Schieber, aye; Austin, aye. 

 

Motion was made by Austin and seconded by Schieber to approve and accept (per request of Lisa Cundiff, Assistant Administrator, Kay County Health Department) Anco Services bid for janitorial services for the Kay County Health Department 16 $1,610.00 per month for the Ponca City facility and $475.00 per month for the Blackwell facility on Bid#2013-34 (opened in BOCC meeting on June 17, 2013).  Motion carried:  Rowe, aye; Schieber, aye; Austin, aye.

 

DA Brian Hermanson explained his reasoning for requesting a courthouse dog on courthouse premises on a daily basis.  Hermanson said the dog is to be used as a comforting tool for victims who have gone through serious crimes.  He said children as well as adults sometimes have to sit for hours before testifying and these dogs are trained to stay with the person and bond with them providing comfort.  Hermanson stated this program is relatively new; he noted Wagoner County already has in place and reported the program has been very successful.  Hermanson spoke with Judge Boyd regarding having the dog in the courtroom and reported Judge Boyd said with certain restrictions he would be fine.

 

Sarah Palmer, Victim’s Advocate, said the dog would remain with her throughout the day and at night; the dog will always be escorted and wearing a special vest.    She said these dogs are selected for temperament and respond to 15 different commands.  Palmer explained the process, training and what happens before receiving the dog and noted if approved it would probably be around six months to one year before receiving.  She noted these dogs are for people who need soothing; she said it has been proven the dogs relax the victims. Palmer noted people who are not comfortable with the dog or have allergies will not be forced or expected to be around the dog.  She stated there are strict requirements for the care of the dog.

 

Questions were asked about liability and expenses.

 

Hermanson said the cost of the dog is $20,000, but he would get the dog free of charge.  He noted all expenses and liability issues would be the responsibility of the DA office. 

 

DA Hermanson noted before he can move forward he needs the approval of the BOCC and Judge Boyd.
