Progress as Promised - Due to the overwhelming concern with the public’s safety Commissioner Hanning has made it his mission since taking office in 2011 to improve Salt Creek Bridge (6th and 305th). This project has been a long time coming with many obstacles to overcome, including long meetings with ODOT voicing our concerns and doing all that we could to bump this specific project up on the list. ODOT had projected Salt Creek Bridge ground to be broke 8 years out from the start date. With the hard work and dedication Commissioner Hanning has pushed and fought for this project to break ground in a record breaking time of 5 years. So it is our honor to say once again Commissioner Hanning has delivered progress as promise and ground has been broken! Projected completion on this project is spring of 2017 weather permitting.

New Asphalt Lay Down Machine - I am excited to announce all three Wagoner County Districts have teamed up and purchased our very own asphalt lay down machine.Recently some changes had been made in our biding process causing delays in trying to complete projects. With this purchase not only will the county be saving time but money. By teaming up we will be able to tackle several trouble areas within the county.


June 2016

This 2016 FY Commissioner Hanning was granted a reap grant from the Eastern Oklahoma Development District (EODD). Commissioner Hanning has chosen to assist Oak Grove Fire Department with a second fire station to better assist the residence in their district.

According to Fire Chief Summers construction is scheduled to happen at some point in the month of July 2016. The new fire station will be 4800 sq ft facility that will house 4 trucks. If all goes well Chief Summers is hoping to have a fully functioning fire station by December 2016.

Chief Summers explained with more housing development growing within the rural areas a second fire house will lower constituents ISO rating in the southern half of their district benefiting there insurance, not to mention a quicker response time.
