ROGERS COUNTY -- The people of Rogers County voted Tuesday to build a new courthouse and 911 center.

Final tally:

  • 74% Yes  -- 2132 votes
  • 26% No   -- 769 votes

The current courthouse was built in the 1930's and those who work there say it's filled with mold, it floods whenever it rains and there's no way to keep people safe.

The new courthouse and dispatch center will cost $20 million. The vote will not increase taxes.  Instead, it extends a 1/6-cent sales tax to pay for the project.
