We spoke with Committee Co-Chair and Osage County District Judge John Kane this week for Talk of the Town on KPGM AM1500 and FM99.1 and discussed the importance of public input. Judge Kane said he was surprised with the response from the public at the Tuesday night meeting in Pawhuska.
The results from the poll at the Tuesday night meeting in Pawhuska was almost unanimously in favor of building the new annex to the north of the existing courthouse.
Judge Kane also encouraged everyone to try and attend at least one of the meetings, however if they had any questions they could contact him at the Osage County Courthouse.
You can listen to the replay of this week's Talk of the Town Saturday Morning at 7:40 on KPGM AM 1500, FM 99.1.
