The Board of Osage County Commissioners met for a regularly scheduled meeting Monday morning at the courthouse in Pawhuska and 12 properties across the county were approved for purchase.
Larry Burrows, of Miller EMS, was at the meeting to give a report on what had happened in the month of July. Burrows reported that they had responded to 36 phone calls in the Barnsdall area. Of those calls, 27 resulted in transport. Owasso didn't have to respond to any of those calls. Burrows added that he is trying to get a training session set up with Air Evac.
The commissioners signed a resolution to begin advertising for the vacant managerial position at the Osage County Fairgrounds in Pawhuska. Pat Lyons will be the interim manager.
The commissioners also waived the rental fees for the Tough Enough Benefit, which will be held on November 1st and 2nd at the Clarence Brantley Indoor Arena. This is a non-profit event with all proceeds raised going toward helping Tina McElyea in her fight against breast cancer.
During executive session, the commissioners decided to hire Tina Lynn on as a full-time janitor and they have decided to interview three applicants for the open E-911 position.
The next regularly scheduled Board of Osage County Commissioners meeting will be next Monday at 10 o' clock in the morning.
