Wynona Schools will start on Aug. 11th at 8:30 a.m. and enrollment will be on August 6th from 8 am until 4 pm. Summer vacation is winding down.

School supply lists will be available at the school office and at the town hall.


The Wynona Board of Trustees met on July 15. The Board conducted standard business, then they voted to award the contract for the CDBG waterline construction to SMC Utilities.

They also voted to amend an ordinance pertaining to the Dog Catcher, allowing him to issue citations on animals at large. This ordinance was already on the books. The amendment just clarified it.

A complaint was made to the board about the tall grass and trees in the ditches on East 6th Street and the Board agreed that the town employees should clear this area.

Attending the meeting were Della Carter, Evelyn Pitts, Loretta Little, Donna Swanner, Chance Crawford, Johnnie Lott, Janet Delaney and Tennie Slone.


Wynonans are still plagued daily by dogs running at large. The Town Hall gets calls every day about people letting their dogs run loose. It keeps the dog catcher hopping. It is town ordinance that people keep their dogs contained on their own property.

We have had reports of dogs penning people in their cars where they can’t get out and also running loose in other people’s yards.

Citations will be issued to those who do not control their dogs.


Just a reminder that Lee Webb is still coming to the Town Hall on Fridays from 11:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. to help veterans with their benefits.

Veterans are reminded that they can use their tax exempt card from the state to exempt taxes on their phone bills. Contact your telephone provider for more details.

The Oklahoma Department of Veterans Affairs representative will not be coming to Osage County anymore, but Webb will be still doing veterans assistance for this area.

Every Friday Webb will be at the Pawhuska Community Center from 9 - 11 a.m.; in Wynona from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.; in Hominy from 1 - 2 p.m.; and at Cleveland City Hall from 2:30 - 3:30 p.m. Any other towns that need assistance can come to one of these towns to meet with Webb.

VA Healthcare meets all the requirements for Obamacare, so anyone who does not have their VA Healthcare should come and talk to Webb.
