Preparing for the next storm

Tulsa, OK – The Tulsa Public Works Department is shifting dollars around to be sure it has plenty of salt to treat Tulsa's streets. The department has announced this morning it is taking $125,000 from a pot-hole patching fund to purchase an additional 3,000 tons of salt.

Public Works Director Charles Hardt says he is robbing Peter to pay Paul but he has no other options, short of asking citizens to come outside with a salt-shaker.
