Chamber opposes 1-cent tax renewal

Board asks commmissioners to reconsider the road tax

(Continued)

CLAREMORE —

Another point of concern is that road projects in Claremore are not given consideration within the 1-cent county tax budget. 
County road tax budgeting does fund road projects in other county towns and cities, including Catoosa, according to the board. 
The commissioners have recently stated that state law prohibits them from working inside the City of Claremore.
More than 50 percent of the 1-cent tax collected comes from city of Claremore businesses, operating within the city limits, according to the chamber.
