DURANT, Okla. -- The City of Durant is getting residents involved to improve infrastructure.

The city started a new Streets and Infrastructure Task Force comprised of citizens and city leaders. That means there will be a wider mix of opinions to identify priorities.

Through online surveys on the city's website and in public forums, the task force wants to hear about the biggest problems and how to fund them.

"I want the public to know we really do want better roads and a better sewer plant," said public works director Marty Cook. "It really just comes down to time and money and making everything progress."

The first public forum will be Thursday, April 18.
