A County-appointed committee says Deschutes County should privatize more roadwork as one way to help cut a budget shortfall.  The County currently faces a three million dollar annual deficit in the roads budget. Other recommendations include consolidation of remaining roadwork with other local governments, a new gasoline tax and an increase in the hotel room tax. An article in the Bulletin says the committee tried to find more efficient ways to do things before asking residents for more money. County Commissioners will now examine the recommendations.
