4-To-Fix-The-County was the main topic of discussion at Thursday's Collinsville Chamber of Commerce meeting. Tulsa County Commissioner Wilbert Collins was the speaker and stressed the importance of a yes vote Dec. 13th. That vote would continued capital improvements across Tulsa county by extending an existing 2/12ths cents tax for another 5 years. The most direct benefits for Collinsville would be improving the dangerous S-Curve (19th & Main) and having cell phone locations displayed for 911 dispatchers.

Four county-wide propositions are on the Tuesday Dec. 13th ballot. Those include capital improvement projects for court room facilities, parks, Expo Square, Enhanced E-911 and designated road projects. Commissioner Collins cited 56th St. North as another example of planned roadway improvement (in addition to Collinsville's S-Curve).

Mayor Stan Sallee added details for the planned S-Curve improvement which would be a joint effort with county labor and materials and right of way purchases by ODOT.
