The article claims that Tulsa, Oklahoma is seeking public input on the city's largest-ever general obligation bond package, a $238.6 million proposal that could go before voters in February 2005. Mayor Bill LaFortune unveiled the proposal saying that his government had been able to work with each of the nine members of the Tulsa City Council to determine which projects should be included. The size of the bond package was based on city needs and the money available as older bonds have been retired. As a result, the city property tax should remain unchanged at 12.17 mills or $1,217 per $100 assessed value, if voters approve the bond issue.
