TULSA, OK -- Tulsa voters approved a tax increase on Tuesday to pay for street repairs.  The construction work won't start until next summer.  It will be in addition to the work going on now that's funded from current taxes.

Tulsa's mayor says city hall learned to consult with voters about building a package so it won't be rejected.

"So the next time we need the support of the citizens for a project, they'll understand and again we'll get their input because we know that's what works," said Tulsa Mayor Kathy Taylor.

Over the next few months, the city will schedule projects and build a timeline of work that should take five years.
