District 1 will match Cherokee Nation funds in the amount of $71,864.

The board gave its nod to a resolution that would approve a resolution for approval of recognition awards for employees for the fiscal year 2024-2025.

Girdner was also given permission to find wording in metal letters to attach to the southeast corner of the sheriff's office. Gird

A resolution to authorize Cherokee County to receive $114,872 from the U.S. Department of Interior, which will be appropriated to school districts involved, was approved.

All claims, purchase orders, blanket purchase orders, appropriations, and transfers were approved.
