Tuesdays the Delaware County Commissioners approved the designation of five roadways allowing golf carts to operate on with certain restrictions pursuant to the

Oklahoma State Statute.

Four resort areas; Shangri La Resort, Red Arrow Marina, Arrowhead Marina, and Cherokee Yacht Club now have designated golf cart travel. Restrictions include; operation occurs during day light hours only, the roadway must have a 25 mile per hour sign and signs cautioning motorists of the possibility of golf cart traffic, and the area is unincorporated (a region of land that is not a part of any municipality).

Commissioners receive and filed the official certificate of votes cast in the election held on Aug. 28 for Commissioner District No. 2 and Delaware County Sheriff. The official ending tally results for commissioner; Tom Sanders 711 and Billy Cornell 627; for sheriff, Harlan Moore 2,284 and Mike Wilkerson 1,059.

According to Moore, he will be placed on the October 1 County Commissioner meeting agenda to discuss his taking office early.

A resolution was approved by Commissioners allowing the Grand Lake Public Works Authority to authorize an increase in the loan amount from the Oklahoma Water Resources Board from $4.8 million to $5 million which will finance construction of a new water treatment plant and a water storage tank, and development of five water wells, to serve Monkey Island.

Commissioners received the six month bridge inspections for Delaware County, Districts No. 1 and 3, submitted by Guy Engineering. The rating criteria worksheet performed by each Commissioner was one of the deciding factors as the Commissioners selected Guy Engineering to perform architect/engineer services for the counties bridges for the 2013 fiscal year.

The Flint Ridge Fire Department received no bids on their used fire hydrants so the Commissioners approved the department's request to declare them as salvage along with five sets of turn out gear.

In other business:

Commissioners continued the bum ban until Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin lifts the state ban.

District No. 3 Commissioner Danny Duncan was appointed to serve on the Board of Circuit Engineering District No. 1.
