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
"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.
