Ailing water district seeks help from Oklahoma tribe

The Pottawatomie County Commissioner voted 2-1 to ask the Citizen Potawatomi Nation to help a financially strapped water district.

The tribe has already contributed $1 million to keep the Pottawatomie County Rural Water District No. 3 going. The tribe wants to help out because some tribal members depend on the district for services.

The decision to move forward with a tribal agreement will rest in the hands of the water district's membership.
