County purchases early warning system

(Continued)

CLAREMORE —

Last week, before the board approved the purchase Rogers County Commissioner Dan DeLozier questioned the proper procedure and the fund that could be used to pay for the purchase.
“Would we need to bid this purchase,” DeLozier asked. “Because we can use it for road closures, can we pay for it from road money.”
It is a service and it would not need to be bid, according to Assistant District Attorney David Iski.
“I think we are very clear on what road money can be spent for,” Iski said.
The board tabled the discussion a week ago. However, during Monday’s meeting, there was no further discussion regarding the account that would be used for the purchase or bidding requirements.
