Council Approves Vision Tulsa Program

 

City Councilors unanimously approved a final version of the Vision sales tax program to appear on the April 5th ballot.

The program includes three components, which will appear on the ballot as separate items: a permanent sales tax for public safety, a permanent sales tax for transportation and streets, and a 15-year sales tax for economic development. This program will not increase the current overall tax rate of 8.517 percent in the city of Tulsa.

"We've worked relentlessly for more than two years to get this right," Council Chair Jeannie Cue said.

"No single person got everything they wanted, but together, we developed a program that all ten of us, our constituents and the city can be proud of," Cue said.

The Vision development process was unprecedented in its public engagement and transparency, which included five citizen-led and three Council-led task forces, more than 100 televised public fact-finding meetings and nearly 30 town hall meetings across the city. If approved, this sales tax program will be overseen by the Citizen Sales Tax Overview Committee.
