Publication of legals up for decision


The Rogers County Commissioners will decide Wednesday which newspapers will publish their legal publications.
The decision came Monday during the board’s weekly meeting after a brief discussion about the method used to determine the newspaper schedule.
In 2012, the board voted to disburse the publication schedule between the Claremore Daily Progress, Chelsea Reporter, Inola Independent and Oologah Lake Leader.
Prior to the vote, legal publications were primarily published in the Claremore Daily Progress, the only daily newspaper.
The 2013 schedule was established by “drawing names out of a hat,” according to Commissioner Kirt Thacker. He said Monday he and County Clerk Robin Anderson performed the drawing in her office and later listed the order on the next meeting agenda.
Commissioner Dan DeLozier made a motion to keep the 2013 schedule for 2014, however the motion died for lack of support.
Thacker moved the board should conduct another drawing to insure the schedule would be “fair” to all newspapers.
In addition to the commissioner’s action to change the current schedule, the board decided to conduct a public drawing and require all county elected officials to use the mandated newspaper during their designated term.
A public drawing will be conducted on Wednesday during a special meeting to determine the 2014 schedule. The commissioners will also decide if exceptions can be made to the publication schedule.
Three of the newspapers only publish one paper a week. The board will decide if the one daily paper, The Claremore Progress, will be used throughout the year when time is an issue.
The meeting will be at 1 p.m. Wednesday in the commissioner’s meeting room at the Rogers County Courthouse.
