Duncan, OK 73533 Hours 5:00-8:00 November 20,2021 Downtown Duncan Holiday Stroll on Main Street  “The holiday stroll is the retail event of the season for downtown Duncan,” said Main Street Duncan Board Member Tara Harper, “and something we’ve enjoyed doing with friends and family for years. The stores offer something new, fun games, and a great selection of food.”   This Saturday, many down- town merchants will be open late, 5-8 PM for the annual Holiday Stroll.  Shoppers are invited to come ‘stroll’ the streets and visit the local shops to start the holiday season . Many shops will offer light refreesments to shoppers as well as specials on products and services. There may be door prizes to sign up for and other drawings and give- aways.  This annual tradition is a favorite amongst the retail business owners and those in the community. Families and visitors from out of town fill downtown Duncan Distinctive Décor employees prepare for the upcom- ing Holiday Stroll See ‘Holiday Stroll’ on Page 2 Armstrong discusses city finances By Derrick Miller  Duncan Mayor Robert Armstrong thinks the City of Duncan’s revenues may improve this year as the pandemic trends downward.  Recently, Armstrong provided a City of Duncan update through a video posted on the city’s Facebook page. Armstrong said the city continues to be in the black as a result of increased revenue streams.  “In 2014, our city was in the red, negative $6 mil- lion,” he said. “In 2015, former Mayor (Ritchie) Den- nington hired City Manager Kimberly Meek. It’s good to give credit where credit is due. The results speak for themselves.  “So, in 2015, she inherited a $6 million in the red city, and in 2019, she was able to get us back in the black. And in 2020 and 2021, we continue to remain in the black.”  Armstrong said the city has two sources of revenue: Sales tax and the sale of utilities, such as water and electricity.  A company is brought into the city to give a grade on the city’s finances with zero being the worst and 10 being the best.
