Commissioners talk growth, development, Highway 20 bypass

Rogers County Commissioners provided a current picture of all the goings-on in county government during the State of the County presentation Friday.

Commissioners Steve Hendrix and Ron Burrows spoke of housing development, population growth, infrastructure projects and more at the Chamber of Commerce-hosted event.

Hendrix said currently the county’s population is right around 90,000 but is continuing to grow.

“In 1980 we were about 45K so we’ve more than doubled our population in the last few years,” he said. “Rogers County is the sixth largest county in the state of Oklahoma.
