The City of Tulsa spent $1.8 million cleaning up after a wind storm in July.

The bulk of the cost was fuel for equipment the city used to move debris.

The city spent $471,000 on regular labor costs and $159,000 in overtime. Crews worked 10-hour days and six-day weeks for most of the time.

Employees from the stormwater, street maintenance and sewers departments handled the cleanup and supplied the equipment.
