Tulsa's city councilors want some input on road construction as the city plans the future of Tulsa's decaying streets. The News On 6’s Emory Bryan reports the first month of a long series of town hall meetings begins Tuesday night.

Two city councilors will be at Wright Elementary just west of 45th and Peoria. They will talk with the public and to listen to concerns about the condition of the streets in Tulsa. This follows a meeting last week by another group looking at the same issue. The mayor put together the "Complete Our Streets" panel which is looking at how Tulsa builds streets and how to pay for the repairs the city needs. That panel got an earful of complaints.

"Are we going to use a two inch overlay of asphalt or we going to build 12 inches of concrete? Somehow we've managed to forget how to build roads that last,” said one man.

A separate study that was requested by the executive branch is underway and that report is due at the first of December.
