Checks that were signed included rent for counseling in the downstairs office, and a $20,650.00 check from the Choctaw Nation to District One for the Goss School Road project to install a water line.
There were no non-compliance purchase orders or payroll to be approved for this week.
The Board approved a commission for Jeremiah Teeters to be a Jailer/Dispatcher for the Atoka County Sheriff’s Office.
The Commissioners opened sealed bid #1079 for the Atoka County Election Board ballots.
There were two sealed bids with multiple prices for the different types of ballots. The first bid was from Royal Printing, and the second bid was from Midwest Printing.
With the advice of Election Board Secretary Racheal Feuerhelm the Board approved the sealed bid from Midwest Printing.
While Midwest Printing is approximately one half cent higher depending on the ballot size. Feuerhelm suggested the company due to their colored ballots.
“I still prefer Midwest because of the colored ballots when there is a multi-ballot election.” Feuerhelm commented.
There were no new updates from County Officials.
