Secrecy masked as public welfare

Special meeting slated to discuss county’s emergency management inventory

(Continued)

CLAREMORE —

“The board wishes to account for all of these items and expenditures in preparation for the transition to a new Emergency Management Director. 
“At this point, this is a fact, finding action. Should there be concerns, the Board would need to decide what action, if any, would be taken in the public interest. Of, course any action would be voted on in a public session,” Iski wrote.
Bob Anderson explained that he has been working to return inventory to Rogers County. Due to the cooperative nature of the position, equipment has been placed throughout the county to insure it would be available during an emergency.
 Bob Anderson said, he has made multiple phone calls to both Human Resource Director Jenny Bentley and Kelly Deal, in an effort to return all the inventory that is currently being stored at area fire departments. Additionally, Bob Anderson reports that he is currently not involved in any pending legal action with the county.
Bob Anderson is not currently being investigated for any criminal activity, according to the Rogers County Sheriff’s Office. 
Iski is working with Robin Anderson to modify the agenda, but still plans to hold the discussions in executive session.
