Pauls Valley, Oklahoma — Last night’s Pauls Valley City Council meeting was full of breaking developments for members of the governing body as well as Pauls Valley General Hospital as both Mayor Billy Riddle bowed out his post and a vote was approved to rescind a proposal for a sales tax.

The former was a decision based on personal conflicts and the latter made as a potential partner had yet to be officially named. This means a now vacant seat for the public office and a shift toward a new date in the future for something still seen as vital to saving the medical facility.
