The Bend City Council has some good budget news: police and fire services will benefit from an unexpected $1.8 million in extra tax revenue. Most of the windfall came from property taxes that came in higher than expected. Police Chief Jeff Sale said one good use of the funds is to buy an E-ticketing System that will handle traffic tickets and other paperwork. The council talked about the extra money during a work session Wednesday. According to an article in the Bulletin, the system allows officers to easily gather information by scanning the bar-code of a person’s driver license and registration records.
