Roads in Pocola, Oklahoma, suffer from potholes and alligator cracking. The Town of Pocola has proposed a 1-cent sales tax increase to raise funds to fill the potholes and make other needed improvements to streets and drainage systems.
Pocola City Clerk-Treasurer John Limbocker says there isn’t enough revenue to fund maintenance needs. “Our town currently has 99 miles of paved roads and it costs about $80,000 to repair a mile of road, so we’re just getting further and further behind (SW Times).”
