Jail trust


However, Calvey has since removed the item from discussion.

“I’m going to move to strike this item because I was informed by the district attorney’s office that in order to make the appointmen­t I would have had to have named the person,” Calvey said.

Calvey said previously the process worked differently, but newer court cases require an appointmen­t to be named in advance, per the district attorney. He said he would bring the item back in a later meeting.

No explanatio­n was given as to why the board did not move to accept the resignatio­n without naming a replacemen­t appointee.

Named to the trust by Calvey, Lamb attended few meetings, according to records. A review of available minutes by The Oklahoman found that Lamb was present at 14 of 34 trust meetings since January 2020.

According to the trust rules, Lamb should have been removed at the end of 2020 due to his lack of attendance. Any trustee missing more than half of the trust’s meetings in a calendar year is to be “immediatel­y removed,” according to the document.

It is unclear why Lamb was not removed previously or what prompted his resignatio­n. Attempts to reach Lamb for comment were unsuccessf­ul.

The next regularly scheduled county commission­ers’ meeting is Oct. 4.
