Tulsa County voted to extend 4-To-Fix-The-County for 5 more years. A 2/12th cent sales tax + 50c/month/cell phone bill will fund more county improvements including a redo of the dangerous Collinsville S-Curve (at 19th Street merging Main & Broadway). The numbers posted at the 3 Collinsville polling places immeditely after the polls closed Tuesday Dec. 13, 2005 are shown below. They might not reflect absentee ballots and other final adjustments. The overall Tulsa tally was similar with the 4 propositions passing in the 54-58% range for yes votes. The overall E911 approval was 73% yes. (More info: Sample ballot / Collins presentation)
