The Atoka County Commissioners held their weekly meeting Monday, June 15, 2020 at 10 a.m. The meeting was posted Live on Facebook for citizens of the county.
In attendance at the courthouse were Commissioner Chairman Shane Tomlinson, Vice Chairman Gilbert Wilson, Commissioner Marvin Dale, County Clerk Christie Henry, Sheriff Tony Head, County Assessor Joe McClour, County Treasurer Kim Harkey, Emergency Management Director Derrick Mixon, and Court Clerk April Maxey.
County Clerk Christie Henry discussed the options available for the workman’s compensation through ACCO-Sif. The lump sum totaled $146,279. Option one is a payment for $73,139 and option two is $75,334. Option two includes an increase in price of $2,194.
Henry stated she always puts extra money into the archive account which is at $112,000. She suggested to the Commissioners to pay the lump sum using the $112,000 from the archive account with the remainder being taken from the Use Tax account.
The Commissioners approved Henry’s suggestion.
A resignation from Traci Walker from the Atoka County EMS Board was accepted. The Commissioners appointed Cecil Mackey to the available seat.
County Assessor Joe McClour’s agenda requests were approved. The contracts included: Visual Lease Services (an oil and gas appraisal service) for $25,000 which was the same as last year, DataScout, LLC, (software license and support) who provides mapping software for $1,745 yearly, and a contract with DataScout to have the county’ crop and Ag land mapped correctly for $11,000.
McClour advised that the mapping for Crop and Ag land had never been done before. The process would insure the classifications on Ag land will be correct. The payment would come from the Reval Account and not the General Fund.
The county will enter into a service contract with Sequoyah Enterprises detention services. The price per day is $26.
Commissioners approved the list of individuals who would be responsible for Requisitioning and Receiving.
For District One – Sharon Hutson, Eddie Isom, and Chad Isom. For District Two – Carla Jackson, Carla Anderson, and Dale Sheffield. For District Three – Denna Herring, Wayne Jackson, and Toby Settlemire. For the Courthouse – Dennis Powell, Angie Birdsong for the commissioners, Commissioner Shane Tomlinson, and Commissioner Gilbert Wilson. For the EMD/911 – Derrick Mixon and Angie Birdsong.
The Sheriff’s Department will receive $8,000 from the County Use Tax fund for end of Fiscal Year payroll. The Sheriff had thought the office would be short more than that, but was not.
Henry presented the monthly appropriations to the Commissioners for their approval.
Emergency Management Director Derrick Mixon updated the meeting about the county’s current COVID cases. Atoka County has eight cases of COVID, three are no longer contagious.
Mixon advised the county is under an elevated fire risk, but there is a small chance for rain this week.
Treasurer Kim Harkey reported the June sale was a success. The county sold 17 properties. The properties owed $17,626.65 in total for taxes. The total amount the County received as payment after closing was $57,592.
