County Commissioners hear request from Under God’s Care
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.
