Arkansas River Infrastructure Task Force Findings

 

The Tulsa City Council and Mayor Bartlett established the Arkansas River Infrastructure Task Force to consider the best course of action to build long-planned river corridor infrastructure.

The task force, which included representatives from surrounding communities and other stakeholders, conducted eleven fact-finding meetings from December 2013 through May 2014 to learn more about different aspects of river infrastructure development opportunities, challenges and costs.

Contact your City Councilor with your input by calling 918-596-1990 or by email.

Council Approves FY 14-15 Budget

 

The Tulsa City Council approved the City of Tulsa fiscal year 2014-2015 budget Thursday. The budget totals about $688 million, down about 2 percent from the previous year.

After weeks of public meetings and listening to the concerns of citizens, the Council amended the budget to restore funding to transit and the arts. These programs were slated to be cut in the proposed budget.

Programs will be funded through increased revenues, mainly raised from fee increases: $100,000 from court fee increases and $667,000 from alarm fees. Additional revenue includes $20,000 from a Transit Matters donation and $8,000 in added revenue from the Henthorne Performing Arts Center.

Of this $795,000 increase in revenue, $250,000 will reestablish 57 crossing guard positions, $210,019 restores Tulsa Transit service hours and routes, $108,000 goes to keep Henthorne PAC doors open, $80,000 funds Tulsa's Main Streets programs and $146,981 is added to the unassigned fund balance.
