The free to the public roll off dumpsters available at the Rogers County District 2 barn located at 6190 E. 400 Rd., Oologah, will no longer be available as of Sept. 1.

While we hope the discontinuation of this Solid Waste Disposal Program is only temporary, the non-renewal vote by the citizens on the one cent Rogers County sales tax question, which was on the June 26 Primary Election ballot, has forced the County Commissioners to deal with tremendous budget cuts.

The loss of this county revenue stream, which has been in place since 1988, will require numerous adjustments to our county services. We will continue to use the resources that we have available to meet the needs of Rogers County to the best of our ability.
