Okmulgee County, Oklahoma
Okmulgee County does not appear to have an official website. A list of county officials can be found at the National Association of Counties website.
The Tulsa World conducted a public records study submitting FOIA requests to eight counties and two large towns during the summer of 2012. The newspaper requested county payroll records, police radio logs and copies of emails from city managers or mayors.
The public information officer, Okmulgee County payroll clerk Sally Sprouse, was reported as being stressed about the prospect of adding another item to her to-do list. “I don’t mean to be hateful, I just think a lot of this is nobody’s business really,” Sprouse said. “I don’t see why we have to give this information out.”
