Studies Are Underway to Examine OTC’s Efficiency

From Tulsa County by RON PETERS

During the last legislative session, you may recall there was a lot of discussion about ways to increase revenues. Equally important, there needs to be a discussion about how to improve the efficiency of the services provided by the state of Oklahoma to our cities and counties.
