911 board dissolution delayed
The proposed ending of the LeFlore County 911 board has been postponed for another week after commissioners followed the advice of the LeFlore County District Attorney's Office. During the commissioner's Monday meeting, they discussed passing a resolution disbanding the current 911 board for the commission of a new public trust. The brief respite for the 911 board will be temporary delay while the commissioners consider whether to create a five-, seven- or nine-member trust. District 2 Commissioner Lance Smith suggested a five-man board but Sheriff Rob Seale said a seven-member board would include a fire department representative.Fry said the trust documents have not been approved formally so the commissioners were in no rush to made a decision Monday morning. A motion to table the agenda item until next Monday was approved by the commissioners. If the resolution is passed, the 911 board will remain intact for 60 days from the date of the transaction, then the public trust will take control of the facility.
