Commissioners proclaim National Public Safety Tele-communicator's Week

Tuesday, April 12, 2022 - At their regularly scheduled meeting on Monday at 10:00 a.m., the Sequoyah County commissioners voted to approve this week as Telecommunicators’ Week.

There was discussion, as well as a proclamation, that was presented in recognition of National Public Safety Tele-Communicators’ Week for Sequoyah County. Dispatchers receive a variety of calls every day, ranging from fire, police, and emergency medical service calls. Commissioners commended dispatchers for their dedication and hard work, not just for the week but for every week they experience on the job.

Resolutions, bids, and consideration resulted in the discussion and approval of an agreement to work on private property between District 1 and Doug and Raven Smith. There was also approval of a lease contract between Welch State Bank and the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s office for the purchase of a 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe at state contract pricing.

During the citizens' presentation, Sequoyah County Emergency Manager Steve Rutherford said, "I will be keeping everyone updated as the next few days of weather unfolds. Severe weather is in the forecast, but, of course, that changes by the hour, so make sure you have a way to be alerted if needed."

New business was heard, which lead to the approval of appointing Bud Smithson to the KIBOIS board.

Discussion and approval of monthly reports and blanket purchase orders were also held.
