OKLAHOMA – Mayor: Sales Tax Offers Way To Fund Infrastructure


On Tuesday, Sept. 10, voters in the city of Tahlequah will have an election for a half-cent city excise tax.

“On Sept. 10, you have the opportunity to have your voice heard about the future growth of Tahlequah’s infrastructure,” said Mayor Sue Catron. “What I like about this proposal is that it is going to provide consistent funding so we will no longer have to be reliant on debt issuances that cost us money.”

The ballot will have a proposition for Tahlequah City Council Ordinance No. 1287-2019, which “enacts an excise (sales and use) tax increase of one-half of one percent on all taxable sales within the corporate limits of the City of Tahlequah…”
