The question of spending up to $30-million to fix Bend streets will be on the May ballot. City Council voted unanimously Wednesday night to send the issue before voters. The question will be whether to allow a levy which had funded a Downtown Urban Renewal District to continue and shift that money to fix specific City streets: “It is ultimately the decision of the voters as to whether they would prefer to spend that money on infrastructure or whether they would prefer to have a tax cut. I think it's a legitimate question to ask people as Eric pointed out the condition of our streets is not good.” Bend Mayor Jeff Eager says the levy is for up to 27-cents per $1000 of assessed value. That would cost the owner of a $200,000 home $54 a year. The money would be targeted to specific street projects, principally the Reed Market Corridor, including improvements at Simpson and Mount Washington Drive. If there is money left over, other road projects will be included.
