Here’s your chance to balance Bend’s budget. You can now go online and try your hand at balancing the City’s budget with the new Bend Budget Balancer website. It’s interactive, educational and we think it’s even a little fun. The Budget Balancer allows users to allocate money in the city’s proposed 2011-2012 General Fund.  City spokesperson Justin Finestone has details on how the "Budget Balancer" works: “So you can choose to add to those programs if they are important to you like fire or police or street maintenance; or you can cut programs if you'd like to save money. There's also an option for raising revenue if you've added to a lot of programs that are important to you but not enough money to support it. You can add different types of fees and revenues to balance the budget; so it's really an educational tool.” General Fund Revenues total about $33 million and the City Council has the most discretion on how those revenues are spent on programs and services. If you'd like to try it out go to: www.bendbudget.com.
