Kiwash And Caddo Cooperatives Vote To Consolidate, Cordell Office Becoming Regional Hub

Member owners of Kiwash Electric Cooperative of Cordell and Caddo Electric Cooperative of Binger made history this week as they successfully voted to join forces to create one new cooperative. CKenergy Electric Cooperative, Inc., will become effective January 1, 2016, as the Oklahoma’s first consolidated electric cooperative. On Monday, August 10, Kiwash members passed the Proposition for Consolidation by 83 percent. Three days earlier, Caddo members overwhelmingly approved the proposition, with 89.3% voting in favor. Consolidations present great opportunities for cost reduction by eliminating costly duplication of services as well as achieving savings from improved employee efficiencies and attrition and the new cooperative is one example.

History Surrounds The Washita County Courthouse

The Washita County Courthouse is over a century old and is one of the most historical  landmarks in the county. Originally built in 1911, the Courthouse is actually the second  court house to be built. According to a 2008 article in the Cordell Beacon, the  original courthouse was a two story wood building built in  1902 when the county seat was first moved to Cordell. In 1909,  the courthouse burned, and all documents were destroyed.
