Sales Taxes Pass In Wagoner, Nowata Counties; Bixby Approves OneGas Ordinance

Posted: Updated:
WAGONER, Oklahoma -

Wagoner voters approved a one-cent sales tax increase.

The City said it has not asked for a sales tax increase in 36 years and the money raised by Proposition 2 would help fund future projects.

Voters also approved Proposition 1, which would “modernize” its current three-cent tax code. According to the City’s Facebook page, the current tax code was adopted decades ago. The city said by modernizing it, the city could more efficiently and effectively fund projects.

Nowata County voters also approved a sales tax extension of their own.

Proposition 1 extends the one-cent sales tax for five years. The money will be specifically for the construction, operation and maintenance of the county road and bridge system.

The renewal will be effective July 1, 2018, and would end June 30, 2023.

In Bixby, voters approved an ordinance that would grant OneGas, Inc. the right to install a distribution system within the public ways of the city for the transportation, distribution and sale of gas.

The ordinance would last for 25 years.
