Commissioners declare OHCE Week; info provided on RAVE storm app

Tuesday, April 30, 2024 - The Sequoyah County Board of Commissioners approved a proclamation on Monday declaring the week of May 5–11 as Oklahoma Home and Community Education Week (OHCE).

The OSU extensions OHCE is a prominent state-wide organization that has a presence in all Oklahoma counties. The organization focuses on helping individuals, families, and communities achieve a higher standard of living through educational initiatives.

A few examples of the services offered by the Sequoyah County OHCE are their ongoing support for 4-H programs, the preparation of homemade meals for events and fundraisers, and donations of items to schools and other entities each year.

Sequoyah County 911 director David Slaughter said, “With the recent storms and storm season amping up, I wanted to make sure everyone is aware of the RAVE app. The app alerts emergency personnel with a notification of a tornado watch or warning when prompted in the area. If citizens are interested in signing up for these alerts, they can do so by going to smart911 and signing up.”

Sequoyah County Undersheriff Charles House provided a sheriff’s office report update for commissioners. House stated, “Over the last 7 days, we had 750 dispatch logs, served about $199,000 worth of warrants, served 23 papers, 7 protective orders, and took 34 reports.”

During the new business portion of the meeting, commissioners approved accepting a donation from Cherokee Nation to the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office.

In addition, there was approval to surplus a variety of items for the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Department and approval for the purchase of a 2024 Ford F150 Police Patrol Unit.
