Tulsa City Leaders Seek Public's Input on New Capital Funding Package

Posted: Updated:
Tulsa -

Tulsa Mayor Dewey Bartlett and city councilors will present a draft of the capital improvements funding package to the community at five public meetings this summer.

The new funding package will replace the 2008 Fix Our Streets program, which expires next year.

The 2008 package, funded by a 1..167 sales tax and bonds, went entirely toward fixing streets.

The next package will continue street improvements and address high priority needs in other city departments, city officials said.

After receiving public comments, the new funding package will be finalized and put on a ballot for the November election.

The public meeting schedule is as follows. All meetings will begin at 6 p.m.

July 16 - Hardesty Regional Library Frossard Auditorium, 8316 E. 93rd St. (Districts 7 and 8)

July 30 - Martin Regional Library Auditorium, 2601 S. Garnett Road (Districts 5 and 6)

Aug. 5 - OU-Tulsa Schusterman Center Auditorium, 4502 E. 41st St. (Districts 4 and 9)

Aug. 6 - Rudisill Regional Library - Library Hall, 1520 N. Hartford Ave. (Districts 1 and 3)

Aug. 13 - Carbondale Assembly of God, 2135 W. 51st St. (District 2)
