City of Checotah

Mayor's Corner

To the people of Checotah, I am happy to report at this time that our city is doing just fine. Our sales tax figures are holding up pretty good for this time of year thanks to all of you who shop here in town, frequenting all of our great businesses.

We have had a good summer and are now getting ready for fall and winter. Dan Hale and members of the maintenance department will be getting equipment ready for winter, Christmas lights reworked and banners ready to go up for the holiday season. These projects, as well as all the work they do in a regular work day, keep them very busy!
