We’re in the final hours because we know if voters will support a $30 million Road Improvement Measure (9-83) for Bend. A spokesman for the political action committee "Better Roads for Bend", Neil Bryant says besides fixing some trouble spots around town the measure would also help the local economy. He says the projects would generate hundred’s of construction jobs, and some may go to local workers:  “Because of the public bidding laws, you can't guarantee that a local contractor will get the bid for a particular project. But our contractors are very good; they know there's a lot of rock underground they know how to sharpen their pencils.  So I'm hopeful that Jack Robinson & Sons, Taylor Northwest, Hooker Creek, Knife River are the ones that are the successful bidders, and that they're local. But even if an outsider gets the bid; they'll have to live here, they'll have to buy materials here.  They'll employ people here." Some people opposed to the measure tell KBND that times are tough and they can't afford it right now. If approved, the measure would cost the owner of a $200,000 home about $54 per year.
