Citizens to Give Input on Needed Tulsa Fixes

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Tulsa leaders are asking for citizens to visit any of five public meetings throughout the city and weigh in on what capital improvement projects they want to see funded first.

The meetings begin July 16.

Mayor Dewey Bartlett and city councilors will present a draft funding package, which includes capital improvement projects selected from among needs presented by city departments earlier this year.

After public comments are received, the package will be placed on a ballot for voter consideration in November.

Voters can choose to approve funding for the selected improvement projects through sales tax and a general obligation bond issue.

This new funding package would replace the city's previous 2008 Fix Our Streets program, which expires in 2014.
