TULSA, Oklahoma -

The city council is expected to approve Tulsa's budget for the next fiscal year in the day ahead. Mayor Bartlett said the budget is close to what he proposed.

He said it's extremely tight, and comes with a minimal number of layoffs. Bartlett said any major changes would have meant more city workers would have lost their jobs.

"We're able to keep things going relatively well," Bartlett said. "Things will take a little longer than they have in the past, but most services will still be provided."
