I really think all sales tax money should be spent on street improvement ONLY. Every street I use in south tulsa is in terrible shape, overcrowded and needs repair. Even recently repaired streets need to be repaired.
I don't think any sales tax dollars should be spent on operational department budgets.
Sales tax dollars should only be spent on capital improvement projects.
Its hard for me to believe we elected a republican mayor who always wants to increase taxes and spending.
The city should do what families and businesses do - become more efficient, cut spending, live and operate within their means.
I don't think any more money should be spent four laning roads in north tulsa that nobody uses hoping for economic development, when roads in south tulsa, where tax dollars are generated, are narrow, overcrowded and falling apart.
If the county is going to raise funds from jail operations then the county should be shut out of the sales tax dollar proposal.
I think traffic engineers are doing a terrible job with traffic lights, tripping, sequence and timing. They are much slower, less responsive, worse than a few years ago. When I try to call the city to explain problems I am rebuffed and prevented from discussing issues with the traffic department.
I don't think Blake Ewing should be receiving preferential treatment to further his own personal economic wealth and success.
I don't think city councilors should be supporting trespassers, squatters and bullies who are preventing economic development on private property next to turkey mountain. I am sorrily disappointed that councilors seem happy to destroy existing park property on riverside drive by allowing commercial development inside riverside park.
I don't think the city should raise water and sewer rates every year. I think the city should adopt a goal to REDUCE rates every year by becoming more efficient.
If the mayor says having sidewalks on riverside drive are dangerous, then what is the city going to do about the miles of sidewalks along all arterial streets all over the city to make them safe?
