Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett is in town this week to discuss local option sales tax.
Oklahoma City has used local option sales tax – a tool that provides citizens the choice to tax themselves to fund projects to improve their communities – since 1993. Projects have ranged from a new library, to convention and sports venues, to public transportation improvements, sidewalks and trails. In Idaho, though, this tool is not available except to a few small resort communities.
▪ Thursday, Feb. 4, in the Holland & Hart conference room on the 17th floor of Zion’s Bank Building at 8th and Main streets in downtown Boise. Reception begins at 5:30 followed by the presentation at 6 p.m.
▪ Friday, Feb 5, in the COMPASS board room, 700 NE 2nd St. in Meridian. Presentation begins at 9 a.m.
Both events are free and open to the public, although space is limited. Please RSVP to COMPASS at 475-2232 or via email.
