Red ink in the City of Bend's budget. That issue faced Wednesday night by City Council. The City Council received a committee report on more cutbacks. City Councilor Jeff Eager: “The hole in the budget is being described as about $17 to $27-million dollars over the next five years. Built into that number is some fairly significant increases in police and fire to ensure we can maintain our current level of service.”  Departments want 25 more police and fire. The committee wants to cut that to four new police and four new firemen. Other proposals. Cutting back contribution to Community Development, stabilization reserve fund and cutting $1.1 million to streets.   All of this will save almost $15-million in five years. “What the Council will have to do in conjunction with the budget committee in January is to look at this recommendations and balance them with other needs of the City, recognizing that public safety is a priority for the General Fund and make some tough decisions.”
