OKLAHOMA CITY – The 16 projects of MAPS 4 will officially go to a vote of the people on December 10. OKC City Council voted the MAPS 4 resolution through Tuesday, August 27 with some debate.
The plan failed, and the eight-year 987 million MAPS 4 packages was passed with no one voting against the resolution.
“Don’t you dare tell me that you came up with a MAPS that the people wanted,” said Shadid, who believes people should have the choice to vote on the 16 projects individually or at least over several votes and not just one package.
Shadid’s attorney calls what city council is doing “logrolling” and says to expect a lawsuit.
“We are just glad to be part of the proposal and glad to move on through the process,” said OKC Energy FC Co-owner Bob Funk.
