At the meeting of the Osage County Board of County Commissioners this week, the Commissioners received reports from Kay Kelly from E911 and Jerry Roberts from Emergency Management. The Commissioners opened bids for oil, lubricants, asphalt, sand, and concrete. The Commissioners also approved several hundred items from the Osage County Sheriff's Office to be junked or transferred to other agencies.
Kay Kelly from E911 discussed several shifts and changes with Volunteer Fire Departments throughout Osage County including the closing of Drum Creek Fire Department, and Nelogoney Volunteer Fire Department pulling back its coverage area. Kelly also discussed some on the changes with the E911 system after an AT&T system update.
Jerry Roberts with the Osage County Emergency Management discussed many topics with the Commissioners, including the boil order in Barnsdall. For 8 days in February Barnsdall was under a mandatory boil order, during which time the National Guard brought out water for citizens as did volunteers from Owasso, bringing more than 18,000 bottles of water. Contractors are currently working on the water lines in Barnsdall remedy the issues which caused the boil order, and are expected to be done within the next two to three months. Roberts also mentioned that they would like to start looking for a part time employee.
