They approved the minutes of the Monday, June 11 meeting with a minor correction.
The commissioners approved a report from the County Election Board.
In Officers reports, County Treasurer Renee Howard gave the Sales Tax and Use Tax reports. Sales Tax was up from last year, but down from last month. Use Tax was up both from last year and last month.
There were no blanket purchase orders to approve.
The commissioners accepted the results of the Jackson County Commissioners of County Treasurer’s Resale Deeds for property acquired at June 11. Howard reported that before the sale date there were 102 properties on the resale list. At the sale, there were 33 offered. Twenty-one sold and 12 came back to the County. There may need to be a bit of fine tuning on policies next year, according to Howard’s remarks about the sale. Some people were prevented from bidding on property because it went too high too fast. Howard did say interested buyers on the 12 available pieces can still come make bids at the Treasurer’s office.
The commissioners approved the re-appointment of Jerry Marquart and Renee Collingwood both to serve on the Jackson County Memorial Hospital Authority Board of Trustees.
They approved Resolution 2012-23 for the Jackson County Board of County Commissioners to direct the County Treasurer to reimburse the County Election Board’s Personal Services General Fund Account pursuant to Title 62, Section 335 of the Oklahoma Statutes. This is done each year to provide pay for the Election Board to be able to work on special elections. During the year, the Election Board will receive funds as reimbursements and will give those to the commissioners to deposit back into the General Fund.
The commissioners approved re-appointment of Lynn Rudd and Grover Knight to serve on the Jackson County Emergency Medical Service Board of Trustees
