The session lasted about 45 minutes and the board met with Bentley the entire time.
Bentley has been working for Delaware County since August as a part-time human resources consultant.
Her contract with Delaware County is approximately $26,000 annually and she receives a $100 stipend monthly for a cell phone, according to the meeting minutes of the Delaware County Commissioners.
She is required to attend one meeting of the Delaware County Commissioners monthly.
Bentley has been using her personal time off from work in Rogers County to attend the meetings.
Bentley’s employment was the only item listed on the agenda, the details of which were not given.
No action taken on the executive session.
In other business, the board approved the 2014 schedule of meeting dates for the Rogers County Victims’ Impact Panel and approved several reimbursements.
The reimbursements ranged from approximately $449 to $2,766 for fuel and salaries.
Agencies including Oologah Talala Emergency Medical Services, Rural Water District 4, the Town of Oologah and the Rogers County Planning Commission reimbursed the county.
