The city of Tulsa wants to extend the third penny sales tax and you can have a say on which projects might benefit.

The tax pays for capital improvement projects throughout the community and the mayor’s office says citizens know best what the needs are. That's why the city is holding a series of town hall meetings at local libraries to get input.

All of the meetings begin at 7 PM.

The meetings will be held September 7th at the Central Library, September 12th at the Rudisill Regional Library, September 13th at the Martin Regional Library and September 19th at the Helmerich Library.

The third penny sales sax was first passed in 1980 and every five years, Tulsans have an opportunity to vote on a new package of proposed projects.
