DURANT, Okla. -- Bryan County commissioners voted this morning to oppose the proposed sales tax increase in the city of Durant. District 3 Commissioner Ivan Kelly says one commissioner was unable to show and will vote on whether or not to oppose the election to raise sales tax figures in order to pay for a new high school.

Residents in rural areas have expressed concern about the election. They claim they will be paying more for a facility they won't use.

No word yet on when the next meeting will be.
