The Board of Osage County Commissioners met for a regularly scheduled meeting at the Osage County Fairgrounds in Pawhuska on Monday in light of concerns dealing with the coronavirus.
All county-owned buildings had been closed from the public for the previous two weeks and the commissioners extended that proclamation for another week. All public events scheduled to take place on county-owned property will continue to be postponed or canceled until further notice as well.
Osage County Emergency Manager Jerry Roberts alerted the public that the Osage County Health Department in Pawhuska has coronavirus testing available for those who feel as though they need one.
Osage County District Attorney Mike Fisher let the public know there is a non-essential establishment in the county who has yet to follow Governor Kevin Stitt’s executive order by closing their doors from the public. Fisher said this is a misdemeanor offense and can carry up to six months in jail along with a $3,000 fine for every day their business remains open.
There was one utility permit signed at the meeting as well.
The Board of Osage County Commissioners will meet at the Agriculture Building once again next Monday. That meeting is set to start at 10 a.m. for those interested in attending.
