TULSA -

Several Green Country city councils will meet Monday evening to come up with a plan on how to move forward since Governor Stitt is allowing communities to partially reopen.

Jenks, Sand Springs, Bixby and Muskogee are all holding meetings to discuss their next steps.

In Jenks, the city could lift restrictions immediately if the council votes in favor of that plan.

The mayor of Sand Springs says the city it plans to adopt the governor's recovery plan, but it will keep playgrounds and the community center closed.               

Bixby city councilors will re-evaluate emergency proclamations and possibly make changes to follow the Governor's plan.

In Muskogee, the COVID-19 task force has recommended following Stitt's plan. The city will make an official decision this evening.

Jenks City Councilors will meet virtually. The others cities will hold in-person meetings.
