Special election results for Gene Autry, Atoka and Sulphur
(KTEN) -- Another special election day is in the books in the state of Oklahoma. Three south central Oklahoma cities put up propositions for the taxpayer vote.
In Gene Autry, taxpayers voted on whether or not to approve a contract renewal with OG&E. Only 14 ballots were cast, all in support of the renewal. This will make OG&E responsible for electric utility work for the next 25 years.
In Atoka, taxpayers voted on a similar proposition-- whether or not the Public Service company of Oklahoma's franchise agreement with the city of Atoka should be renewed for electric utility work in city limits. That was passed with 85% approval.
In Sulphur, a proposition on the ballot asked if ward one city councilman, Alan McKay, should be removed from office. Just over 56% of voters denied the proposition. McKay will stay as ward one city councilman.
KTEN did reach out to the city of Sulphur requesting information on why there was a proposition for McKay's removal on the ballot, but did not receive a response.
