CHELSEA — Rogers County Commissioner Dan DeLozier is working to address a graffiti issue in District 1 as crews work to repaint bridge areas that have been recently tagged.

DeLozier received a number of phone calls regarding the railroad underpass located on 4300 Rd., just north of East 320 Road. 
“People were complaining about the profanity on the bridge,” DeLozier said.
The bridge had been painted over many times by vandals and the commissioner is hopeful the new paint will give crews the ability to monitor the location closer.
Graffiti may be relatively uncommon in the area but crews will be watching the area to insure those responsible can be reported to the authorities.
“We always want to hear the concerns of our citizens and work to fix any issues,” DeLozier said.
Citizens are encouraged to report any acts of vandalism to the Rogers County Sheriff’s at (918) 341-3535.
