Commissioners Discuss Bond Issues, Children’s Safety

During Monday’s regular weekly meeting, the Sequoyah County commissioners voted to place a speed limit sign of 35 m.p.h. at 1097 Road off U.S. 64B in District 1. With a daycare in the area, the commissioners said it should help bring increased safety for the children.

There was also discussion to approve issuing lease revenue bonds and notes through the Sequoyah County Educational Facilities Authority to improve schools in District 5 of Sequoyah County public schools. This bond would allow schools to vote in excess of their current bonding capacity then issue bonds over several years to pay. This bond will be the second one for Roland public schools.

The bond issuance would not exceed $7 million dollars and would be used for construction, equipping, renovating, and remodeling of school buildings, acquiring school furniture, fixtures and equipment for the schools.

Once approved, the bonds will improve the community, providing infrastructure and, according to District 2 County Commissioner Steve Carter, one of the three facets vital to a community -- “good schools, good roads, and good recreation.”

Commissioners also voted to appoint Crystal Stuart as receiving agent and Amanda Goins as requisitioning agent for the commissioner’s office. The salary of County Election Board Secretary Cindy Osborn was discussed in executive session.
