On Tuesday, November 10, City of Broken Arrow voters overwhelmingly approved renewal of the expiring Vision 2025 sales tax to hire more police officers, firefighters and fix Broken Arrow roads.
The two propositions will replace the existing Vision 2025 sales tax, so there will be no tax increase in Tulsa County. The Wagoner County portion of Broken Arrow will see a slight tax increase of 55 hundredths of a penny ($0.0055).
Proposition 1: Establish a sales tax of three tenths of one penny ($0.003) to hire additional police officers and firefighter/paramedics; as well as fund the acquisition and replacement of public safety vehicles, equipment, technology and apparatus.
Proposition 2:Establish a sales tax of twenty-five hundredths of one penny ($0.0025) for the purposes of improving, constructing, and maintaining city streets, sidewalks, and related stormwater appurtenances, including the installation of traffic control devices and signalization.
The revenue generated from the renewed Vision 2025 sales tax will remain in Broken Arrow to benefit Broken Arrow residents. The City will hire 20 new police officers and 20 new firefighters, purchase public safety equipment and improve streets and sidewalks. The annual estimated revenue is $7.2 million.
