SAC Nutrition leadership steps down


Tuesday, August 24, 2021 - The Board of Sequoyah County Commissioners accepted the resignations of two people in charge of the SAC Nutrition Centers at their regular weekly meeting Monday.


Carol Thomas, center director, and Dee Fields, the centers' assistant project director, turned in their resignation letters last week. The commissioners made no move to name their replacements at the meeting.


In other business, the commissioners unanimously approved an interlocal agreement between Sequoyah County and the Town of Gore (District 2).


The panel also approved annual DARE agreements between the Sequoyah County Sheriff's Office and schools in Brushy, Liberty, Moffett, Central High and Gans.


The commissioners also approved an annual contract between Sequoyah Enterprises Inc. and the Board of Sequoyah County Commissioners for services at LeFlore County Juvenile Detention Center.


The board also agreed to allow Sequoyah County Sheriff Larry Lane to electronically sign for a $10,000 JAG grant, and they unanimously approved the sheriff's office's application for the Small Rural Tribal Body Worn Camera Program, which will supply Lane's deputies with 20 additional body cameras. The program provides $5,250 in funding, which must be matched for a total of $10,000 for the 20 cameras. Each camera costs $400, Lane said.
