Financial woes continue to plague Jazz Hall

Posted: Updated:

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - After the cash-strapped Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame made a late payment last month of nearly $8,200 to cover its downtown assessment fees, the tardiness is again testing the patience of some county officials.

The Tulsa-based nonprofit has a history of making late payments to cover expenses dating back to 2012 - when it had to raise more than $75,000 to pay overdue debts or face eviction.

County Commissioner Karen Keith says the late payments have become "a headache." Commissioner John Smaligo called on the jazz hall to meet its financial obligations to taxpayers on time.

Jason McIntosh, the hall's CEO, says the facility is in better financial shape then it was several years ago, and that the county did end up getting its money.
