The Board of Osage County Commissioners met for a regularly scheduled meeting at the fairgrounds on Monday morning to get some things accomplished before the Christmas holiday.
The commissioners talked about how COVID-19 has impacted them personally within the past week. District one commissioner Randall Jones said one of his employees recently died from the virus and district three commissioner Darren McKinney said four of his employees currently have it. All three commissioners stressed that it is important to continue taking the virus serious and take the proper precautions to avoid getting the coronavirus.
There was discussion regarding district one getting quotes so that they can replace an equipment shed that has collapsed. It was decided that district one commissioner Randall Jones will now move forward with looking at selecting a company to replace the shed.
The commissioners signed a title sheet with Guy Engineering so that they can move forward with a bridge project along the Caney River. There was also a resolution signed to purchase one or more used 2012, or newer, diesel pickup trucks with four wheel drive.
The commissioners signed bid contracts for road oil, food, antifreeze, lube and oil. There were no utility permits signed at the meeting.
