A public hearing is held on the budget for fixing the damaged Tulsa County river levees. A feasibility study is needed before the county can apply for federal dollars to start repairs on the aging levee system on the Arkansas River. Levee Commissioner Todd Kilpatrick says big time repairs are necessary to make the 70 year old system safer. A feasibility study is the next step in the process.

Matching funds are needed for the feasibility study and Kilpatrick says the county has the money to proceed with that step.
