The city is set to take action after a 2 Works for You investigator showed people living at Magnolia Manor Apartments without air condition in 90-degree temperatures.

On tonight's agenda - the city will hear a new ordinance that could impact other apartment complexes across the city - after a 2 Works for You investigation into Magnolia Manor.

The changes apply to all existing residential and nonresidential structures that have to meet certain standards - such as the premises, the structures, heating and ventilation, sanitation and safety from fire and other hazards.
The main reason for the revision is to make property owners responsible for insuring their resident's public health, safety, and welfare.

Also on the agenda, a street could also be looking at a name change for a man who was gunned down by a Tulsa police officer.

There is expected to be discussed and public comments on changing 36th Street North to Terence Crutcher Street.

Crutcher was shot and killed by officer Betty Shelby in 2016.

A jury acquitted Shelby of manslaughter last year.

Tonight is just the first reading.

The vote will take place next Wednesday's meeting.
