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.



Highlights from this week's City Council meeting - July 10





The City Council features adoptable pets at the first regular Council meeting of each month to raise awareness about animals available for adoption at the city's animal shelter.

The featured adoptable pet this month is Cooper. Cooper has heartworms, so he is looking for an adopter who will work with City of Tulsa Animal Welfare to help him get better. He is a 2-year-old Chihuahua mix.

If you are interested in adopting Cooper, or any of the wonderful animals at   City of Tulsa Animal Welfare, call 918-596-8000.

You can also stop by the shelter at 3031 N. Erie Ave. to view all the animals still available for adoption or visit is a real time listing of animals in the shelter and is updated hourly. Just type in "Tulsa" or your zip code and click "Adopt a Pet" to search. Then check the City of Tulsa Animal Welfare shleter list box and select "Use this shelter list."

You can then search for all dogs, cats and others, or search by breed, gender, age, size, and color. You can also select "Register your Breed Interest" and receive an email when matching animals arrive at the shelter.
