Tonight, the Bend City Council will discuss the problem of deteriorating roads and little money to pay for repairs. “The City's budget is a bit like the shape of the City's roads, a bit bumpy. There is a $17 to 27 million shortfall in the next five years. There are some pretty big potholes and significant ruts showing up. In two weeks, the City Council may make a decision on whether to ask voters to continue a 27-cents per $1000 assessment that will sunset this year. It now pays for a Downtown Urban Renewal District. “So some folks are wondering if it makes sense for the City to give voters the option to either take that tax cut, or invest that money in some street improvements. Because our streets are in pretty rough shape right now.” Mayor Jeff Eager says tonight the council will prioritize the projects. “If the City were to do that, and make that decision, which specific projects would the City do.” It will be discussed in the 5pm Council work session. KBND News will be there and we'll let you know their decision.
