Excerpt from “County discuss altering bid specs for repair project”
Another non-action agenda item came from Sheriff Eddy Rice. He was requesting the commissioners acknowledge suspension of the cross-commission and memorandum of understanding between the Muscogee Creek Nation and the Sheriff’s Department.
Rice was unable to attend the meeting as he was on a call in the northern part of the county. But Ballard said Rice had made him aware of some problems, and he felt Rice might be waiting to address those problems until after the Creek Nation’s run-off election for principal chief.
In Rice’s information to the commissioners, read by Thomas, he said, “As of 9-22-15, the Okmulgee County Sheriff’s Office is suspending the cross-commission and memorandum of understanding with the Muscogee Creek Nation. I intend to re-evaluate our professional relationship in 2016. And I hope to be able to resolve a few issues in an effort to solidify and strengthen our working relationship while serving the citizens of Okmulgee County.
