Tulsa’s city parking program is in shambles and Mayor Bartlett wants it repaired.  The city, next month, will seek requests for proposals from companies interested in operating and maintaining the city’s parking meters.


The city has over 1,600 parking meters and it is estimated that 44% of the meters are not working. To make the needed repairs, it would cost the city over $600,000.
