Voters in Bend approved $30 million in General Obligation Bonds to pay for road improvements throughout the City. For those supporting the measure it was a night for celebration. KBND news spoke with Neil Bryant of "Better Roads for bend- who said it was a good night for those who wanted to see the measure pass: “That it is; we're happy there was no polling and we weren't sure if we were going to win. From the phone polling we did, it sounded like a lot of people thought it was a good idea, and that turned out to be true." Measure 9-83 replaced an existing levy of the same amount that is expiring this year. The roads measure will cost the owner of a $200,000 home about $45 to $50 dollars a year in property taxes.
