Poor babies would have to pay 4%. In NY, our sales tax is 8% so what are you complaining about?!?!

WoW 4% really? Considering there is only 3 business that mean most everyone would have to drive someone to get food / supplies etc. so everywhere else in Oklahoma is apprrox 8% so i dont see the issue here. Raise the tax, get more income for the city, if more people are moving in great! then maybe sometime you will get more businesses too. Its a Win / Win

They shouldn't raise the taxes. There is only about 400 people in the whole town.
New York and Chicago deserve high taxes. Those two liberal states like high taxes.

Remember the state tax is 4.5. This will make it 8.5 total unless there is a county sales tax.
