It was a busy Tuesday morning at the Board of Osage County Commissioners meeting and Kelly Bland, Executive Director of Tourism in Osage County, was in the middle of a lot of the action.
Bland was on hand to give a report on how tourism is growing in Osage County. This past weekend, Bland was in Wichita promoting the county.
Bland got to meet with Representative Judd Strom last week and he later emailed Bland about a tourism bill that would affect Osage County in a positive way. Bland will also be a full-time county employee beginning July 1.
The County Commissioners approved funding in the amount of $2,000 going toward the Big Heart Days in Barnsdall and they also approved an interlocal agreement with Sperry Public Schools to haul rock to the parking lot to make repairs.
The next regular scheduled Board of County Commissioners meeting is scheduled for next Monday at 10 o' clock in the morning at the courthouse in Pawhuska.
