The Comanche County commissioners are preparing for the next update to the hazard mitigation plan required by the federal government every five years.
FEMA to reimburse nearly $100K cost
The commissioners approved a contract during Monday morning’s regular meeting to have the Association of South Central Oklahoma Governments (ASCOG) provide plan development services to help the county properly update the plan. The project is slated to begin January 6, 2014, and end July 1, 2014.
The $92,211 cost of ASCOG’s services will be reimbursed to the county by a Federal Emergency Management Agency grant.
Easement near restaurant may be vacated
The commissioners also approved setting a public hearing on 9 a.m. Dec. 16 for a proposal to vacate an easement in the Eastern District on Oklahoma 49 behind Fisherman’s Cove restaurant.
The easement was set aside by the state early in statehood for county use as a road or for similar purposes, but it was never needed. The fact that the land is an easement was discovered when a real estate agent was attempting to sell property that was built partially on the easement.
The Comanche County Courthouse is spreading the word about a new scam affecting courthouse clients, designed at intercepting payments to the court clerks' office.
Robert Morales, Comanche County Court Clerk, said multiple people have been targeted over the past week via phone call by people, from an unnamed firm, claiming to make the payment process easier by accepting payments over the phone, with a promise of sending to the courthouse to be noted on the individual's account.
"The scary part is the callers are saying they have a deal in place with us (Comanche County) and are working on our behalf," Morales said. "That couldn't be further from the truth. We accept the payments directly."
