PAULS VALLEY, OK -- A lawmaker proposes a group home in Garvin County go up for sale to the city.

State Sen. Patrick Anderson, R-Enid, says his bill would allow the Southern Oklahoma Resources Center in Pauls Valley and another facility in Enid to each be offered for sale to the communities for $100,000 in order to avoid them sitting empty.

Anderson says the cities could then lease them to private contractors.

The center is currently set to close in April and Anderson says the mentally disabled residents are being forced to re-locate to for-profit facilities.
