OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) The Oklahoma House has passed legislation to protect tenants of mobile home and RV parks from tornados and other natural disasters.
A bill passed Thursday requires the owner of a mobile home or RV park to provide tenants with an evacuation plan in case of a tornado, high winds or flooding. The plan must be developed with the help of emergency planners in the city or county where the park is located.
Tulsa, OK – A meeting between the Tulsa School Board and the Tulsa City Council was called off at the last minute this afternoon. The meeting was to have discussed how best to pay for school crossing guards, but the meeting's agenda had not been posted.
Holding the meeting without a posted agenda would have been a violation of Oklahoma's open meetings act.
The Tulsa City Council is inviting interested Tulsans to express their desires about funding of local programs through Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) which bring federal money into the community to fund programs approved by the Council each year.
A public hearing, giving citizens their opportunity to comment, will be a part of the Thursday, March 11, 2010 City Council Meeting. That meeting begins at 6 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall at One Technology Center, 175 E. 2nd Street.
