In my last update I expressed my concern on losing ambulance services beyond the Guthrie school district boundaries. That we, in our area of the Coyle school district boundary lines and the non-paying citizens in the rest of our county, must address the issue of funding for ambulance services in the future. At our last BoCC meeting, Monday, March 2nd, this issue was discussed with the City of Guthrie (City Manager Serenah Breland and Fire Chief Eric Harlow), Dale Adkinson (state Director of EMS) and Shawn Rogers (EMS consultant).  Read more…

This week began and ended with another blast from the north that dropped our temperatures, and threatened road conditions and the safety of our residents. Our decisions and priority of action on which roads to sand/salt/plow is a coordinated effort with our county Sheriff’s central dispatch team. They notify us, day or night, of any unsafe changes in road conditions based on real time observations. Our goal, like yours, is to help avoid or reduce the likelihood of a traffic accident. So please remember when traveling in bad weather you can help by taking extra time to arrive at your destination, check road conditions and slow down accordingly, watch out for the other guy, and most important, get there in one piece.

One of our very smart farmers/rancher in our district, recommended we look at a relatively inexpensive piece of road maintenance equipment called a “Road Boss”.  It looks much like a large box blade and is pulled behind a tractor.  We checked into it and after watching a live demo it became apparent to our road maintenance team that this may work on our interior gravel roads in residential areas.  Well, we tried it out this week on Highland Hills Dr. and the neighborhood seemed very pleased with the results.  Read more…
