On August 13, the Tulsa County Board of Commissioners voted unanimously to place an initiative, dubbed Vision2, on the November 6 ballot.
The proposal would extend the 0.06 percent Vision 2025 sales tax through 2029. The current tax is due to expire the first of January, 2017.
A portion of the funds raised by Vision2 would be used for economic development improvements at industrial sites at the Tulsa Airport. A second part of the funds would be set aside for what are termed “quality of life” improvements for selected sites in the county and for each of the cities within Tulsa county.
Mayor Dewey Bartlett has scheduled a series of town-hall meetings for citizen input regarding the improvements to be made within the City of Tulsa.
