Bend City Councilors approved a budget for the next two years at their meeting Monday night. The $428 million, two-year budget, includes a General Fund that's about $1 million less than the previous biennium. City Councilor Jodie Barram says residents may notice some changes: “What people will see is reduction in customer services. So if they go in to Building and Planning or need some services, might see a delay. Police will be responding to higher priority calls and not as quickly to lower priority. So response times may be a little slower.” Barram was the only councilor who voted against the budget. Her objection had to do with the purchase of a $400,000 truck to take care of the roads in the winter. She felt that money could have been better spent elsewhere.
