ER)--While we still await the final results for President, Oklahoma's statewide races have been determined. United States Senator Jim Inhofe retained his position in the election Tuesday. US 3rd District Representative Frank Lucas also won re-election. GOP challenger Stephanie Bice defeated Kendra Horn for the 5th District Congressional seat. That means Oklahoma’s Congressional delegation is all republicans. Oklahoma voters also rejected two state questions on the ballot Tuesday, one aimed at reducing the state's incarceration rate and another that would have diverted some tobacco settlement funds to help pay for Medicaid expansion.

 

In Lahoma, voters approved two propositions. They decided to make the treasures position an appointed one, and voted for a half cent excise tax for improvements on town buildings and facilities.

 

In Grant County, voters approved to continue a quarter cent sales tax for the upkeep of the Grant County Fairgrounds.

 

In Blaine County, voters selected Travis Daugherty as sheriff.

 

Kingfisher County voters approved continuing a half cent sales tax to fund rural fire departments, libraries, roads, the sheriff's office, and fairgrounds upkeep. Voters in Kingfisher County voted down a sales tax for capital improvements

TD)--After a tour of Enid, contractors have estimated 50,000 tons of tree limbs and debris will need to be disposed of. The city of Enid expects to spend about half a million dollars cleaning up tree limb damage from last week’s ice storm. Enid City Manager Jerald Gilbert said he is confident the president would declare a disaster emergency for the state of Oklahoma, which will allow FEMA to reimburse cities such as Enid up to 75% of cleanup costs. City officials say progress has been made in the removal of some storm debris, however, much work remains throughout the city. Residents can pile storm damage limbs at their residential curb side for pickup. Please stack the tree limbs near the curb away from fire hydrants, mailboxes, trash cans, and water meters to assist in the clean-up. To better manage the storm cleanup effort, Solid Waste officials are asking all residents to request a pickup of tree limbs and debris by Friday, November 6th. For those residents that wish to request for a pickup of tree limbs and debris from their residence, please utilize the following options:

 

*Online: Submit a Request at: www.SeeClickFix.com; Choose “Tree Debris Pickup”

*SeeClickFix Smartphone App: Choose “Tree Debris Pickup”

*Phone: Call (580)-616-7300 or (580)-616-7301

 

 If you would like to immediately dispose of debris and tree limbs, you can take them to the landfill on East Southgate, South Government Springs Park Drop site at 1202 South 10th, or the Service Center Drop Site in the 1500 block of West Chestnut. For those residents who wish to take their limbs to the landfill, please bring your last utility bill with the utility account number. City officials are asking all residents to be patient during this extensive cleanup project as it will take crews several weeks to remove all debris.
