Commissioners sell JDC facility

September 21, 2011

Sealed bids for the
Juvenile Detention Center
in Talihina were opened
Monday morning during
the LeFlore County
Commissioners' regular
meeting and after a brief
discussion, a new owner
was named.
Sequoyah Enterprises,
Inc., offered the lone bid
for the facility but at first
glance, Commissioner
Lance Smith suggested the
item be tabled due to the
requirement that the bid
be at least 80 percent of
the appraised value.
Once it was confirmed
that the bid by SEI met all
guidelines, Smith made a
motion to accept the offer
and the company was
unanimously awarded the
The facility has been
under the supervision of
SEI for the last several
years, as the company has
been leasing and operating
the facility for the county.
Other actions taken during
the regular meeting
were the approval to revise
the Eme rgenc y
Management Operations
Plan and the conveyance
of county property located
in the south half of lot
eight in block 75 to the
township of Spiro.
The commissioners
declared the property surplus
and unanimously
agreed to the motion.
The commissioners also
took no action toward the
county mandated burn ban
since the county is still
under a state mandated
burn ban enacted by
Governor Fallin. The commissioners
will address
the burn ban again at their
next meeting.
