Mayor to give address on state of Tulsa's economy
TULSA, Okla. (AP) Tulsa Mayor Dewey Bartlett is slated to deliver his state of the city address this week to update area leaders on the city's potential business prospects.
No agenda was available for Thursday's address, but Bartlett is likely to discuss the city's role in the Vision2 package, which would extend a county sales tax and raise about $750 million in revenue for economic development projects and quality of life improvements.
Bartlett took office in December 2009 amid a national recession that was finally catching up to oil-rich Oklahoma. Bartlett and his staff had to quickly engineer budget cuts at City Hall to stabilize finances.
Bartlett will deliver his remarks at the Tulsa Convention Center.
