CLAREMORE —

Baker requested the disposal of several items on May 13 including a safe, filing cabinets, shelving and four desks transferred to DeLozier.
DeLozier said he is salvaging items including chairs, sinks, toilets to be reused in the construction of his new office building in rural Chelsea.
Furniture, shelving, wiring, windows, wood paneling, electrical equipment, fire extinguishers, display cabinets, light bulbs, air filters, water fountains, rugs, ceiling fans and many other miscellaneous items have also been removed from the building. Many of the items are being used in county barns for office personnel. However, some items have been distributed to outside sources.
Helm said he gave a couch to the Oologah Talala Emergency Management Service.
Several private and public schools have also taken items from the courthouse for reuse, he added. 
Helm said he doesn’t believe anything worth $750 or more has been removed from the building.
