County Commission­ers hear request from Under God’s Care

- By David Seeley PDN Editor

The LeFlore County Commission­ers heard a request from Under God’s Care, a nonprofit organizati­on founded in Spiro by Lameisha Phillips and cofounded by Keisha Hogue, after Monday morning’s meeting officially ended at the LeFlore County Court House.

Hogue told the board that her nonprofit organizati­on helps needy individual­s by such means as food pantries and rehabilita­ting prisoners to help them cope once released into society. She asked the County Commission­ers for any kind of financial help they could.

In the actual meeting itself, only two major items were approved by the board — to approve a bid notice and resolution to accept sealed bids for sixmonth county highway materials and to approve a bid notice and resolution to accept sealed bids for publishing the Commission­ers’ monthly meeting proceeding­s for the upcoming new fiscal year 2022-23.

The board also approved purchase orders, bonds, monthly fee reports, transfer of appropriat­ions, blanket purchase orders and the two ongoing bridge constructi­on projects — one a mile east of Shady Point over the Poteau River and the other on Brazil Creek Road south of Oklahoma State Highway 31 and west of Shady Point.
