Roads, and what to do to fix them was one of the topics faced by the Bend City Council Wednesday night. The problem is easy to see: potholes, ruts on a growing number of Bend's roads. The solution,  not quite so easy. The Bend City Council in a couple of weeks may decide to ask voters to stop a 27cents per $1000 property tax levy from sun setting, and redirect it to roads. City staff presented the Council with Options A, B, and C. Council will have to decide whether to go to voters, and which option to present. Option a is focusing on Reed Market, option B focuses on Empire Avenue.  Councilor Jodie Barram: “My preference right now is for Option B, I realize that after our discussion that most councilors favor Option A, but certainly it's going to depend on what we hear from the public. I'm hoping a lot of people turn out in the next couple of weeks and let us know their opinion before we move forward, one way or the other.” Each option has a price tag of $28.5 million. An Open House is planned for Thursday, February 10th from 5 to 7 p.m. at City Hall. The question, do you want a break on your taxes, or do you want better roads. Councilors are waiting to hear from you. Also, take the poll on the website here! It’s on the right side of this page.
