Chickasha Mayor Hank Ross said the city is working to fix this problem by adding the first new housing development in Chickasha since the '70s.
Ross said the new housing and cleaning up the city will help Chickasha compete with other cities in Central Oklahoma, such as Yukon, Mustang and El Reno.
"There's a lack of appropriate housing for single families. We want people to live here and take their children to school here," Elkins said.
The last month was prosperous for many other counties in Oklahoma as well, with the unemployment rate dropping in 69 of Oklahoma's 77 counties, according to the report.
