Nation in litigation with company

OKMULGEE, Oklahoma — Located within the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Claude Cox Omniplex in Okmulgee across from the Mvskoke Dome is a children’s playground, a couple of basketball goals and an empty concrete slab.

A few year’s ago a splash pad was built near the equipment so the children would have somewhere to play not only during the MCN Festival, but during the summer months.

After the 2017 Festival, the pipes to the pad were removed.

Mvskoke Media learned that MCN is in litigation with the company who built the splash pad.

Mvskoke Media contacted the MCN Tourism and Recreation Department, Public Relations Department and Attorney General Kevin Dellinger for comment.

T&R Director Kyle Lee said they are working with MCN Tribal Construction to evaluate the current pad and equipment to determine whether or not it may be safely used.

‘If we get the green light from them, we will do our best to have it ready for this year’s Festival,’ he said.

Dellinger said in a statement they have been successful in obtaining a judgment against Splash Pads USA.

‘We have been successful in obtaining a judgment against Splash Pads, USA for the full payment of money paid to them by the Nation and we are currently working with Splash Pads, USA, to collect the money from the concrete company hired by them to perform the work,’ he said.

    Mvskoke Media, could you please answer a few questions related to this story. First, why were the pipes removed in the first place? Who removed them? On whose authority? Also, what was being litigated and in what court? If you could please fill in these missing pieces to the story it would be appreciated. MVTO
