BEND, OR -- The Bend City Council is considering when to ask voters to approve a 190-million dollar transportation bond. City Manager Eric King says the bond is designed to help meet the Transportation Vision to the year 2040. He says the council voted last year to put the bond on the May ballot but later removed it due to COVID-19. King says if the measure goes to voters in November it may include what he calls, “economic qualifiers” such as delaying implementation or consideration of unemployment levels. King says another option is to put the bond before voters next May.
