Ponca City voters to cast ballots on street sales tax extension

Ponca City Now - February 2, 2016 3:51 pm

For several years, Ponca City voters have gone to the poll every five years to vote on the city’s one-half percent street sales tax.

This year, they are being asked to make that tax permanent, eliminating the need to call an election each time the tax is scheduled to expire.

The tax is dedicated to the purposes of engineering, improvement, repair, construction, reconstruction and lighting of municipal streets, roads, walkways and bridges.

Since residents sometimes become accustomed to seeing the results the work funded by the tax, and therefore forget how these projects are funded, PoncaCityNow.com will be running photos for the next week to remind voters what they have gotten for their half-cent tax. Today’s projects include work done on Union Street and also on Prospect.
