Ada — Ada’s sales tax for street improvements and economic development will remain in place for another five years.
Voters approved proposals Tuesday to renew Propositions 1 and 2, which authorized the city to impose a one-cent sales tax. Three-quarters of the proceeds are dedicated to street improvements and other public works projects, while the remaining one-quarter is earmarked for economic development.
Unofficial results showed that 838 voters favored renewing Proposition 1, while 364 opposed the extension, according to the Oklahoma State Election Board’s website. The site indicated that 774 voters backed the proposal to extend Proposition 2, while 430 were opposed.
Ada Mayor Greg McCortney said he was thrilled and excited about the results.
