County implements utility permit fees

(Continued)

CLAREMORE —

“We are not only insuring the public is safe now but also in the future,” Thacker said.
The county will not make money from the utility fees, according to Curtis.
Public comments regarding the utility permits were limited. The board did not hold a public hearing  Monday, however, did provide an opportunity at the previous meeting.
Local business owner, Myron Grubowski, questioned the board about the use of Okie to locate utilities.
The commissioners said that they each call Okie before digging.
“They [utility companies] are going to pass this cost on,” Grubowski said.
The board agreed that would be likely.
No utility companies were present for the meeting.
