So, I figured it would be a good opportunity to dust off the Hinton city codes in relation to some of our city’s “Animal Control Ordinances”.

Great Plains Correctional Facility Celebrates Two-Year Anniversary

On June 1, 2017, the Great Plains Correctional facility, a 375-thousand square foot, medium security prison, located just south of I-40 in Hinton, Oklahoma will mark the two-year anniversary for the reopening of the facility in Hinton. And, after two full years, the Town of Hinton and GEO officials agree the prison reopening has been a win-win for both parties. “It’s been a big boost to the Town of Hinton’s economy with that many jobs and that many more people spending money in the town,” Hinton Mayor Shelly Newton said.

“They have been good for the town all the way around. We’re very glad to have them and they just make our town stronger...They’re not only the biggest employer in town, but they’re a part of our community, so it’s a great relationship.”
