What does Oakdale want to fund using a sales tax?

Oakdale’s City Council has identified two large-scale building projects and identified the local option sales tax as the preferred funding source. Oakdale’s Police and Public Works facilities – built in 1992 and 1985, respectively – were constructed when Oakdale had a smaller population and the need for services was vastly different. These facilities need to be updated and/or replaced to meet the needs of a growing community.
