(STILLWATER, OKLAHOMA Updated Oct. 22, 2015) After meeting with residents at the first public meetings for the Half-Cent Transportation Sales Tax election, the City of Stillwater received questions about what transportation projects will be funded should the public vote to continue the sales tax Tuesday, Nov. 10.
According to Transportation Director Jason Peek, Ph.D, P.E., the City anticipates completing the following transportation improvement projects in the near future. Should the half-cent sales tax be renewed, the funds will help the City in the planning, designing and construction of these projects:
Voters will consider whether to renew the Half-Cent Transportation Sales Tax Tuesday, Nov. 10, 2015. The current tax was authorized in 2001, reauthorized in 2006 and is set to expire in 2016. If approved, the sales tax would continue through October 2026.
