Two appropriations for the county jail were approved Monday morning by the LeFlore County Budget Board.
The appropriations — $38,637 and $23,004 – both were reimbursement payments from the state for housing prisoners for the Department of Corrections.
County Commissioners met following the budget meeting, and were told conditions are “close” to qualifying for an outdoor burn ban, but have not yet reached the flash point.
In road-related business, commissioners approved the McMurtry Road project in District 3, approved a permit allowing Water Distributors to bore under Peter Conser/Reichert Road for water passage and approved Floodplain Services’ application regarding AOG’s pipeline replacement as submitted by AECOM.
