Want to help the city of Bend balance it's budget; now there's a "app" for that - sort of - it's actually an interactive program on the Bend City website.

 

City Manager Eric King says in the program they supply you with all of the services that need to be funded - and you try your hand at allocating money appropriately.

 

All of the responses are taken into consideration by city officials.

 

"The responses go into our Communications Director and he'll tally those responses and we incorporate the feedback that we receive from that. Then we give it to Council when they are making decision so say this is the amount of folks that use this tool and here's what their suggestions are for how to balance the budget."

 

The City of Bend's General Fund revenues total about $35-million and there's always a lengthy debate on how that money should be spent.

 

King says the bend budget balancer is free to use and maybe a little educational too.
