New City Office Aims to Reduce Costs, Energy Use

Tulsa, OK Mayor Dewey Bartlett signed an executive order Wednesday to create a Sustainability Department to oversee the $3.8 million in new energy and sustainability initiatives funded with federal stimulus grant money.  The largest projects are $1.4 million for an Oklahoma State University Medical Center retrofit, and $500,000 to replace existing highway lights with more efficient models. Other projects include $350,000 for energy audits of the city's five most energy-consumptive facilities; $75,000 to develop a long-term sustainability plan to guide policy development and decision making; $50,000 to develop a low-interest revolving loan program. 3/04 Tulsa World
