E911 Trust one step closer to formation


The Rogers County E911 Trust Authority is one step closer to officially forming after board members voted Thursday to approve the trust indenture documents.
The documents will be submitted Monday to the Rogers County Board of County Commissioners. 
If approved by the board, the E911 Trust Authority will legally take over the trust and all responsibilities denoted in the contract.
“It is finally coming together,” said E911 Director Janet Hamilton.
“We are one step closer to a trust that will be beneficial to the health and safety of the people of Rogers County,”  Rogers County Commissioner Dan DeLozier said.
Visitors to Rogers County will also benefit from the implementation of the new center, according to Hamilton.
 Rogers County will retain beneficiary interest in the trust.  The details of the trust’s authority concerning employees, as well as day to day operations, will be negotiated by contract.
The trust board has scheduled an organizational meeting at 10 a.m. on Thursday, pending approval by the Board of County Commissioners.
The trustees are anticipated to be Foyil Fire Randy Atchley,  Northwest Fire Chief David Puckett, Oologah Mayor Jerry Holland, commissioner DeLozier, Director OTEMS Kelly Deal, Chelsea Chief of Police Chris Bohl and a designee of the Rogers County Sheriff’s Office.
Each entity involved in the trust board will have accepted a beneficiary interest in the trust.
Entities that have not accepted an interest in the trust may contract for services with the authority; however, will not have a membership to the board.
