On Monday the Tulsa County Commission approved a ballot initiative to extend the Vision 2025sales tax rate. The initiative, known as Vision2, would not be a new tax, but would extend the 0.6% Vision 2025 sales tax rate through 2029. As it stands now, this tax would expire January 1, 2017.
If approved by Tulsa County voters on November 6, Vision2 would generate $748.8 million dollars for Tulsa County. The City of Tulsa is projected to receive $157.9 million. Mayor Bartlett would like to hear from City of Tulsa residents on how to utilize these funds for the benefit of all of Tulsa. As such, the mayor has scheduled 5 public meetings for residents to voice their ideas.
If you can't make one of these meetings, the City of Tulsa is welcoming ideas to be submitted online. Access the Vision2 survey here: http://www.cityoftulsa.org/our-city/vision2/vision2-survey.aspx
