July 28—The Board of County Commissioners voted to terminate Enhanced 911 Administrator Janet Hamilton following an executive session Monday.

Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton addressed the board later and recommended the RCSO oversee the E911 Center until further action can be approved.

Walton told commissioners, “We can rotate around, keep somebody there, and keep a watchful eye on things.”

Commissioner Dan DeLozier made the motion to allow the RCSO to oversee the center. Further action related to the E911 Center will be discussed and considered during next Monday’s meeting, commissioners said.

“We will set a tone for a positive change for what we are duty-bound to do,” Walton said. “We will make it work well and … the people of Rogers County will be better served. We ask for their patience as we transition.”

Tri-District Fire Chief Bob Anderson, who will take a seat on the E911 board next week, said, “I have faith in not seeing any endangerment to the public as a result of the decision today.

“We want to instill in everyone they can still call 911 in case of an emergency.”
