The Board of Sequoyah County Commissioners unanimously voted Monday to add a stop sign at the intersection of East 1120 Road and South 4690 Road west of Gans in county District 3.
Jim Rogers, the District 3 commissioner, said the lack of a stop sign has led to several car accidents in that area, and that installing a sign will add another level of safety for drivers.
Steve Rutherford, Sequoyah County’s Emergency Management director, told the commissioners that the county currently has 141 active cases of the coronavirus, and noted that another person has died of COVID-19 in the county, bringing the death toll to 9.
The commissioners also approved annual DARE agreements between the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office and schools in Brushy, Liberty, Moffett, Central High and Gans.
The panel also gave the green light to a plan regarding powerline relocation for the Redwood Road Resurfacing Project in District 3.
