City of Checotah

Mayor's Corner

On February 2nd the groundhog saw his shadow, predicting six more weeks of winter. Whether you are inclined to believe in the groundhog's weather forecasting abilities or not, the truth is that Checotah, unlike many parts of the United States, has been spared so far this winter. While I for one am truly grateful for that, the fact is we're not out of the woods yet! That being said, it is good to know that your city workers are as well prepared as they can be, with the equipment all winterized and plenty of sand stockpiled for use on the streets if conditions warrant it.
