Therefore, approximately 50% of most cities’ revenue is derived from sales tax.
Various financing options described by Ms. Dorrance were the “Pay as You Go” method, Government Obligation bonds, Revenue bonds, loans from the Oklahoma Water Resources Board, Special Improvement Districts, Tax Improvement Financing and Lease Purchase agreements.
Ms. Dorrance spoke of the pros and cons of each option and used the cities of Okemah and Woodward to illustrate examples of use of the various funding sources.
