Each new year, Rogers County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) appoint current members to serve as chairman and vice-chairman for that calendar year.
During the first BOCC meeting of the year, outgoing chairman Commissioner Steve Hendrix of District 2 appointed Commissioner Ron Burrows of District 3 as the incoming chairman, followed by appointing District 1 Commissioner Dan DeLozier as incoming vice-chairman.
This took place after the swear-in of re-elected Commissioners Burrows and DeLozier.
Hendrix said, “Each year –– for a chairman in this courthouse –– presents its own unique set of challenges and circumstances to work through. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our department heads for their diligence and hard work in helping us to navigate the business that needs to be done in this courthouse.”
He continued to thank each elected official and their offices for their hard work and cooperation in getting county business done.
DeLozier gave special thanks to Commissioner Hendrix for being chairman of the BOCC during another tough year. “He's done a very, very good job being the chairman.”
While a lot of people do not know exactly what being the chairman is, DeLozier said it means that the chairman is number one on the call list of those in the county to be called.
“I have to say that [Commissioner Hendrix] has stepped up and done an excellent job at this...” DeLozier added.
Hendrix turned the meeting over to Commissioner Burrows, but before taking over the position, Burrows commented on Hendrix’s 2022 time as chairman by highlighting a huge undertaking tasked of him.
He told Hendrix, “What comes to the forefront of my mind is the $18 million that you took the responsibility to be able to distribute to many organizations that applied.
Burrows said that everyone who had a part in the American Rescue Plan Act fund process knew how challenging it was to navigate.
