WYNONA BOARD OF TRUSTEES MEET

The Wynona Board of Trustees met on Tuesday, May 19, for their regular meeting.

In addition to regular business, the Board voted to switch finances over to online banking. They discussed getting a credit card machine and decided to wait until employees get more familiar with online banking.

The Board also discussed the Trash Service and since they had more than one wanting to bid, voted to advertise for bids on trash service and open bids and vote at the next meeting.

They also appointed signers for each bank account, the town treasurer, town clerk and Mayor.

The Board voted to modify the ordinance pertaining to the number of volunteer firefighters the Fire Department could have, raising the maximum to 24. They discussed having a fire inspector in the town, but after hearing all the changes that would have to be made to ordinances and staff, voted against it.

The Board voted to put new timers on the school lights so that they would only flash during school times, not 24/7.

Attending the meeting were; Brian Lenington, Donna Swanner, Richard and Sandy Byrd, Darrel with J C & Sons, Linda Ware, Johnnie Lott, Loretta Little, Della Carter, Janet Delaney and Tennie Slone.

NEW TORNADO SIRENS INSTALLED

In other town news, Fire Chief Lance Ryerson, Emergency Management Director Jim Jim Lott and Police Chief Brian Lenington have been working to get three tornado sirens installed. The sirens were donated to the town by the City of Pawhuska.

The sirens will help to get out to all of Wynona residents in the event of bad weather. We really do want to express our appreciation to the City of Pawhuska for their donation.

Jim Jim Lott has been looking for a solution to the siren problem for 3-4 years and everything that he could come up with was too expensive.

Thanks again to the City of Pawhuska for their donation!
