The Town of Pocola may find themselves owing the Internal Revenue Service more than $8,000 for unpaid back taxes.
According to Town Clerk John Limbocker, the problem occurred when the previous Deputy Clerk, Sally Deselms, failed to keep her records up to date. Limbocker said the problem has since been solved after Deselms was replaced six weeks ago with Amanda Goldsmith.
According to Limbocker, $8,200 is the financial burden the town may have to pay in interest after being fined and penalized for failure to pay taxes.

On Monday night, the Poteau City Council addressed the issue of temporary signs, such as garage sale and political, that remain posted after the event is over.
According to Poteau Mayor Jeff Shockley, he and city attorney Marc Bovos, have been asked to research ordinances and to use that knowledge to create an ordinance for Poteau.
Shockley said an example of an ordinance would limit political signs from being placed earlier than 30 days before the election and must be removed within 48 hours after the election. Garage sale signs would have a 48 hour window either way.
