This coming Wednesday the Bend City council will talk about how much money they may give to the effort to bring a four year University to Bend through OSU-Cascades.

 

Bend City Manager Eric King says at the upcoming meeting he will suggest that the council give funds to the cause, but not to exceed 250 thousand dollars.

 

He says the money available comes from about 2 million in extra funds available through very conservative budgeting.  He says 1 million be added to emergency funds and the remaining money will be spent on things like repaving, patrol cars for police, and other projects.

 

King says he'll submit his recommendation to the council this Wednesday. "My suggestion to staff is that its no more than 250 thousand dollars."  

 

King says despite the tough economy they've been able to beef up the city's emergency funds from 5 million dollars six years ago to about 10 million dollars recently.
