Courthouse Complex Still Available by Appointment
The Creek County Courthouse Complex is still available to the public by appointment only. No changes have been made concerning the protective measures that have been taken during the COVID-19 pandemic. As a reminder, the Treasurer’s drive-through, located at the north end of the courthouse parking lot, is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm for your convenience, and cash is accepted.
Judge Kelly Hake announced they will continue working on emergency cases only, using telecommunication as much as possible until May 15th. Commissioner Newt Stephens said, “We are still available to the public, just not face-to-face.”
Commissioner Leon Warner publicly thanked Commissioner Newt Stephens and Creek County Emergency Management Director Covey Murray for going “above and beyond” to track down gloves and masks that were needed for Creek County first responders. Commissioner Chairman Stephens said it has taken “a lot of cooperation [between] everyone…blessed and thankful people stepped up to help.” One of the groups to help was a dentist office that donated surgical masks to help in the efforts. A round of applause ensued.
Rave Wireless for Courthouse Complex
There was a discussion concerning an emergency alert system being purchased and used for the 205 county employees was on the agenda. It is a phone app downloaded to each employee’s phone (who chooses to use it). An employee would be able to hit a panic button and alert both the Creek County and City dispatch centers with the touch of a button should the need arise. The cost is an initial set-up fee of $500 and $4,000 a year for 200 employees. No decision was made at this time.
