Durant is located in south-central Oklahoma only ten miles from Lake Texoma, one of the largest man-made lakes in the United States. We are a progressive community with a thriving, diversified local economy.
Durant is a beautiful city with a large number of magnolia trees lining the streets and on the Southeastern Oklahoma State University campus. Durant has officially been recognized by the Oklahoma State Legislature as the Magnolia Capital of Oklahoma. The annual Magnolia Festival is the weekend following Memorial Day and is attended by tens of thousands of people each year and has a wide variety of family-oriented activities.
The City would like to express its thanks to both the State Auditor and citizens alike for working diligently to help improve Durant. State Auditor Gary Jones' team provided copies of his findings to all attendees for review prior to spending over an hour to answer any and all questions related to the work they did on behalf of concerned individuals. The City Manager, Sarah Sherrer and the City Council were also on hand to assist in the discussion. It was a positive and constructive discussion that highlighted issues from the past, other issues that were simply misunderstood, and a few that the City is currently working with Council to rectify and/or improve upon.
"While I am thankful, as Mr. Jones stated, "No red flags were found" which would have necessitated a deeper forensic audit, its important that collectively we do not stop working for greater transparency and the continued efforts to move our City towards greater prosperity and growth." - Sarah Sherrer, City Manager.
