Mayor Pushes Public Safety, River Tax in State of City Address
Tulsa Mayor Dewey Bartlett repeated his call for a dedicated public safety tax during his annual State of the City address this afternoon.
Bartlett spoke at a lunch hosted by the Chamber of Commerce.
The mayor said the city needs a dedicated sales tax to fund public safety and suggested a sales tax could be used to build dams to put water in the river.
