(Portland, OR)  --  A report issued by the Portland Bureau of Transportation says half of the city's streets are in either "poor" or "very poor" condition.  City Commissioner Steve Novick says that makes the case for imposing an eight-to-12-dollar-a-month fee to raise revenue to fix those streets.  Novick says the revenue the city collects from the gas tax isn't sufficient to fund street maintenance.  A town-hall meeting on the fee issue is scheduled for tomorrow evening at 6:30 at Woodstock Elementary School.
