While the MAPS program is used for big, bold quality-of-life projects, those things don’t matter as much if your city fails to keep up with infrastructure needs.
Just like the MAPS programs, the citizens of Oklahoma City have a great record when it comes to voting for these improvements through bond and sales tax proposals. Also, this is a good time to remind our dedicated readers that our city government is mainly funded through sales tax. The more you spend your dollars in Oklahoma City, the more services our city can provide.
This past September the voters approved the largest bond and sales tax program in Oklahoma City’s history. The vote will allow Oklahoma City to invest $1.2 billion in improving Oklahoma City streets, libraries and parks, as well as hiring more firefighters and police officers. The investment will not only allow Oklahoma City to keep up with our city’s rapidly growing population, but also help pave the way for future growth.
