District 1 Commissioner Doug Hubbard said the tribe's giving funds for such projects is a "normal."

"The Nation had given us the last year, a various sum of money, and it looks like this year is a bigger sum of money," said Hubbard.

District 3 Commissioner Clif Hall's request to restrict funds from ST4 matching account for Cherokee Road to be matched with funds from Tenkiller Harbor Home Owners Association was approved.

"This is a road that we prepped it all and got it ready last year and let it sit. It's ready to be blacktopped," said Hall. "It's one they pick out and we do the match with them."

The treasurer's officer was granted approval to sell county property in Green Valley Estates addition to CKP3 LLC.

"It was county owned property and they came in and bid on 25 lots, and they were going to bid on them all until they saw how much was owed on them," said Cherokee County Treasurer Patsy Stafford. "So they are doing 12 at a time, and this is the first."
