Bryan County landowners sue over Durant annexation

By  | 

DURANT, Okla. (AP) - Some Bryan County landowners and the Oklahoma Farm Bureau are suing the city of Durant over the annexation of part of their land into the city.

The lawsuit by three landowners and the Farm Bureau claims the annexation doesn't follow state law and should be overturned.

Durant City Attorney Pat Phelps says the city annexed 20-foot sections of land south, east and west of the city to create a buffer zone for industry and the Durant airport.
