TULSA, Okla. -

The Tulsa City Council will be meeting again on Wednesday to talk about several items including the Black Lives Matter mural along Greenwood Avenue.

The city council says they'll meet at 2:30 p.m. afternoon over video conference to discuss the mural. The agenda says they'll talk about the possible permit process for placing murals or other markings on city streets and other public places. Representatives from the Arts Commission say they also plan to be involved in Wednesday's meeting after passing a resolution urging the city to find a way to keep what they call a "public piece of art."

Dozens of people painted the words on Greenwood the weekend of Juneteenth and President Trump's rally in Tulsa. The city says they did not approve a permit for the mural and they say if they don't remove it then they're condoning the painting as if there was an approved permit.
