Fundraising for Hochatown Incorporation
Brief Timeline Update
The Board of McCurtain County Commissioners failed to act on Hochatown's Incorporation Petition within the required thirty days.
BOCC asked for a legal opinion from the county District Attorney who declined to give an opinion. The 3 mile rule, allegedly in question, is "settled law." Hochatown has already won a law suit and appeal against the City of Broken Bow in regard to this issue. There's also no question Hochatown is a hiistoric town.
Fundraising begins to prepare for legal action.
Attorney Bob Burke steps up to help Hochatown and seeks relief with Oklahoma Supreme Court. Oral presentations in the case are scheduled for 7/19/22. Burke and Attorney Lizbeth George are also filing in McCurtain County District Court to cover all bases.
