There are concerns over the city budget in Tulsa. A budget shortfall could force the city to cut services.

Tulsa Mayor Susan Savage went before city councilors to tell them the city needs to cut between $10-million and $12-million. Public works, municipal courts, even administrative areas could see changes. City leaders will develop a plan over the next couple of weeks.

Tulsa city councilor Todd Huston: "With the downturn in the economy, plus the events of September 11th, we - like other cities - are going to have to look really hard at our budget items, and make some really difficult decisions."

Mayor Savage says public safety will remain a top priority. The city may try to generate more revenue by increasing some licensing fees and fines. The federal government may also supplement the city's budget for some expenses that came from the September 11th attacks.
