TISHOMINGO, Okla. -- City officials are taking the first steps to improving the city’s streets and water utilities.

The city council approved two topics on their agenda on Monday. The first is a three-quarter sales tax to help pay for a new water tower to increase water pressure in the north-eastern part of the city and improvements to their water plant.

The council also approved a quarter cent sales tax increase to improve the roads in Tishomingo.

City officials have set October 9th for citizens to vote on the council’s approval.

If both proposals pass, the sales tax will go into effect January 1, 2008.

    Tishomingo doesn't need any additional taxes. They need to use the money they have more wisely.

    Oh I think the people are willing to pay the taxes...if the city management is willing and can agree to use the money appropriately. By the way, did they agree to keep the city manager? I realize that the citizens wanted to and apparently expressed that, but that would be against our council's operating procedures wouldn't it?

    People are always calling the news complaining about the streets and low water pressure. Now lets see if they are willing to do what it takes to pay for these fixes.
