Tulsa’s mayor and city council will be holding a second series of City Hall in Your Neighborhood public meetings. The meetings will focus on the Third Penny Sales Tax and General Obligation Bond Issue. The City of Tulsa says the GO Bond and Third Penny Sales Tax are both used exclusively to fund capital improvements like roads, bridges and other critical needs identified by Tulsans and the city council.
The Mayor and Council will be open to receive public comments about the funds during nine meetings. The meetings will be taking place in each of the city council districts through March and April. The meetings are scheduled for:
● March 4, Tulsa Community College Center for Creativity, 910 S. Boston Ave. – District 4
● March 11, Martin Regional Library auditorium, 2601 S. Garnett Road – District 6
● March 12, Fellowship Bible Church chapel, 5434 E. 91st St. – District 8
● March 25, Booker T. Washington High School auditorium, 1514 E. Zion St. – District 1
● March 26, Webster High School auditorium, 1919 W. 40th St. – District 2
● April 2, Whiteside Park Community Center, 4009 S. Pittsburg Ave. – District 9
● April 22, Hardesty Regional Library Frossard Auditorium, 8316 E. 93rd St. – District 7
● April 29, Hale Junior High School auditorium, 2177 S. 67th E. Ave. – District 5
● April 30, Hamilton Elementary School, 2316 N. Norwood Place – District 3
After the meetings, the Mayor and City Council will use the public’s feedback to draft a proposed capital improvements program. The proposal will then be presented at four more citywide meetings before it is finalized. The final proposal will be added to the ballot in November 2013.
