TULSA (AP) — Tulsa county commissioners took no action against the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame on Monday after the nonprofit announced it's raised enough money to pay its overdue bills.

Commissioners met Monday after giving the jazz hall an ultimatum to pay delinquent bills or face eviction. The jazz hall said Monday that it's raised more than $75,000 and has cut checks to pay delinquent bills.

Jason McIntosh, the hall's chief executive officer, estimated then that nearly 100 donors from across the country came forward to help after learning of the facility's financial troubles.

The 24-year-old nonprofit has struggled to stay afloat after years of bad budgeting decisions and a souring economy. This spring, a nearly $4,000 check cut by the jazz hall to cover a half-year's insurance on its building bounced.
