The Bend City budget is feeling the effects of Mother Nature's dumping of snow over the last month. It’s great news for skiers, but for City of Bend budget writers, it's just another headache and a drain on an already tight budget.   They have had to put more money into snow removal. “Wehad anticipated a year end estimate of $160,000 for our snow removal budget. We have raised that by $30,000 to $190,000 for our year-end projection. Right now we have $45,000 of that, $190,000 spent.” Bend Public Works Director Paul Rehault says not all of the bills are in yet from the private contractors, and if Mother Nature continues to dump snow, he will have to go in front of City Council to ask for even more money.   Right now, it's all up to the weather.
