(Published in the Perkins Journal, Thursday, June 21, 1973, 1 (I) time.) MONDAY, MAY 14, 1973 A regular meeting, of the Payne County Board of County Commissioners, was held Monday, May 14, 1973. The meeting was called to order at 9:40 A.M. the minutes, of the May 7, 1973 meeting, were approved, as presented. Six (6) Southwestern Bell Telephone underground line/ cable permits were approved. Twelve (12) letters, from Cushing, were received, read and recognized by the board. Commissioner Cruzan presented a petition, from Mr. Earl Fairchild, requesting that a "Fit1" be put in on a road, located on his property, said road going east, from SH 108. Commissioner Mayfield stated, and the Payne County surveyor concurred, that no dedication had been accepted; that cattle guards were erected across the "RoadS'; that the road had "private" signs POSted; therefore, the board could only assume the road in question was a private roadand not subject to county maintenance. However, in order to be positive, the county surveyor was instructed to again search for any document of record noting acceptance of dedication. No further action was taken. Commissioner Mayfleld then presented a Rowland Rock claim which contained irregularities in the signing of some tickets by a county employee. The district attorney's opinion was that no criminal intent was involved and the county suffered no loss, however, the district attorney further stated that it was poor practice to allow someone, other than the driver, to sign the tickets, and that the matter should be brought to the attention of the foreman. Note: Mr. Cruzan stated that some tickets were signed the day after the rock was received, by the supplier's employee, as the supplier's employee was not present when the rock was picked up. Commissioner Overholt made a motion to hold the claim and tickets over, for further study, before taking action. Payne county surveyor, Darrell Mecklenburg, presented his evaluation of bids for chipping and sealing 6.8 mAles of miscellaneous roads. The low bid was submitted by Evans and Throop Cnstruction Company, Incorporated, said bid in the amount of $24,350.32. However, becauss of the transposition of numbers, in regards to the ton quantity of cover material, the bid price submitted wasloweredto$19,296.32. Commissioner Overholt made a motion to accept Evans and Throop's low bid, provided that the low bid price was lowered to $19,296.32, as corrected. Commissioner Cruzan seconded the motion. The motion carried by a unanimous vote. (said contract to be paid for from Federal Revenue Sharing Funds.) Payne county surveyor, Darrell Mecklenburg, then presented his evaluation of the bids submitted on the fairgrounds road. The low bidder was Kerns Construction Company, with a bid of $47,175.78. However, since there was such a diverse discrepancy between the county surveyor's original recommendation and the bid prices submitted, the surveyor explained that his estimate was based on a project done last summer, and that the project used was not representative. Upon further calculations, based upon representative projects, and allowing for acceptable material price increases, the surveyor stated the true estimate should have been $48,580.56. With this new estimate in mind, the submitted bids were reasonable. Commissioner Overholt made a motion to accept the low bid price of $47,175.78, submitted by Kerns Construction, Inoorporaied. Commissioner Cruzan seconded the motion. Roll was called, producing the following vote: OVERHOLT.. AYE CRUZAN .... AYE MAYFIELD... AYE The motion carried, by unanimous vote. (said contract to be paid for from Federal Revenue Sharing Funds.) The Payne County surveyor, Darrell Mecklenburg, then presented his estimates of the District I roads. Mr. Mecklenburg then stated that the new Drake Addition and Country Club Heights subdivisions both have streets platted, but not all streets are open, therefore, he would have to visually check out the streets before drawing up the bid proposals. He further stated that he could have the above-mentloned streets checked out in order to publish the bids in the Thursday, May 17, 1973 edition of the paper. The bids will be published May 17 and May 24, 1973, and bids will be opened on May 31, 1973. Commissioner Mayfield then presented a claim, from Continental Oil Company. The claim involved two (2) charges, in the amount of $505.93. Note: Both charges were incurred by the previous Board of County Commissioners, and for some reason, Continental had failed to file a claim for either charge. R was the District Attorney's opinion, that since the claim was a legitimate obligation, R should be processed for payment. Commissioner Overholt made a motion to pay the claim, on the advice of the District Attorney. Commissioner Cruzan seconded the motion. The roll was called, producing the following vote~ OVERHOLT... AYE CRUZAN ..... AYE MAYFIELD... AYE Commissioner Mayfield then presented a claim for reimbursement to the Department of Institutions, Social and Rehabilitative Services, in the amount of $405.71, for commodity loss or over-issue. Note: The state audit report, which is attached to the claim, contains the statement, by one commissioner, that daring the month of October, 1972, he issued to everyone who requested commodities. Even so, it was the District Attorney's opinion that a court case would cost the county approximately $2,000.00, therefore, It would be more feasible to pay the $405.71 claim out of the CountySs General funds. Commissioner Cruzan made a motion to pay the $405.71 claim, for commodity shortage, from the General Fund, on the advice of the District Attorney. Commissioner Overholt seconded the motion. Roll was called, producing the following voter OVERHOLT... AYE MAYFIELD. ,. AYE CRUZAN ..... AYI~ Commissioner Mayfield then recalled that at a previous meeting, the Board passed a resolution to sell the Stillwater and Cushing Warehouses. As originally passed, the resolution provided for the sale of Lots 1, 2/3, 4, 5 and 6 (or 1/2) of the land involved in the Cushing Warehouse location. After further study, it has been decided, Commissioner Mayfteld continued, that all land could be included for sale. This means the addition of Lots 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 could now be included in the resolution, as pertaining to the sale of the Cushing Warehouse. Commissioner Overholt made a motion to draw up a new resolution, to include Lots 1 through 12. inclUsive, in the Legal Description of the Cushing Warehouse, and that all lots be included for sale. There being no second, Commissioners Mayfield and Overholt changed chairs, and Commissioner Mayfield seconded the motion. Roll was called, producing the following vote: OVERHOLT.,.. AYE MAYFIELD... AYE CRUZAN ..... NO The motion carried by a 2-I vote. Commissioner Mayfield then stated that at a previous meeting, the first half, of the first entitlement of Revenue Sharing Monies, for the year 1973, had been allocated and published on the Governmental Form, as required by the Federal Government. Commissioner Mayfield then said, as a double precaution, he was presenting a resolution confirming the allocation, as it was originally processed, for inclusion in the permanent county records. Commissioner Overholt made a motion to accept the resolution. Commissioner Cruzan seconded the motion. Roll was called, producing the following vote: OVERHOLT... AYE CRUZAN .... AYE MAYFIELD... AYE The motion carried, by unanimous vote Commissioner Mayfleld then inquired about aletter, received from United Laboratories, regarding the double shipment of an order. Commissioner Overholt stated that he understood the matter had been taken care of, but to be on the safe side, he requested that the United Laboratories sales representative, Mr. Jim Palmer, be contacted. Commissioner Mayfleld stated he would contact Mr. Palmer. Commissioner Mayfleld then presented a petition to vacate county roads, from Cleq Fitsgerald, Attorney, on behalf of Charlie Vincent, Et AI. The petitioners, developers of the proposed Stiilwater Auto Plaza, were going to re-plat the Plaza. Commissioner Overholt made a motion to pass a resolution to vacate county roads, with a hearing to be held Monday, June 11, 1973, at 9:30 A.M. Commissioner Cruzan seconded the motion.
