A Public Safety Funding Committee will recommend to the Bend City Council a series of cuts that could help with the projected $17-million to $27-million budget shortfall in the cities General Fund over the next five years. City Communications Manager Justin Finestone says the Committee took into account all City Departments when coming up with their recommendations:  "The Committee has come up with several recommendations both on the cost containment side and some revenue enhancement. On cost containment we presented them with project growth of City revenues over the next five years. And what they wanted to do was bring personnel costs in line with that growth. So what they're going to recommend to Council is that personnel compensation, City wide not just for police and firefighters certainly, but for all City employees not grow more than revenues."

The Committee also recommends reductions of some services from the General Fund and to enhance revenue, to deploy a Transportation Utility Fee to replace the Street Maintenance funding that would come out of the General Fund.
