Oklahoma City, OK – The Oklahoma Municipal League (OML), along with the Tulsa metro-area mayors and city councilmembers hosted a regional legislative forum last week, focusing on municipal priorities during the upcoming session of the 57th Legislature.
The event, which was hosted by the Oklahoma Aquarium in Jenks, was an opportunity for municipal leaders to meet with other area leaders and their legislators to discuss important issues facing Oklahoma cities and towns during the session, which is scheduled to begin on Monday, February 4th.
Six cities and towns, twelve area legislators and thirty-five municipal representatives attended the forum.
During his comments at the forum, Mike Fina, Executive Director of the OML, stated that the organization thinks it is essential for municipal leaders, mayors, councilmembers, and their legislators have an opportunity to sit down and discuss the important issues facing our cities and towns, as well as everyone getting to know one another better and enhancing the lines of communication between them.
“We hope that this forum is the first of many that OML can help facilitate across the state. We are very pleased with the attendance and everyone’s participation,” Fina said.
The Oklahoma Municipal League is the authoritative source for information, training and resources on effective local government for member organizations and is recognized as THE respected voice of Oklahoma municipalities in the State.
