City Of Portland To Have More To Spend Next Year

(Portland, OR)  --  The latest fiscal estimates show the city of Portland will have about 49-million dollars more to spend in next year's budget.  The "Portland Tribune" reports the increase includes an additional 13-million dollars in ongoing resources and an extra 36-million in one-time resources.  Mayor Charlie Hales says residents can expect his proposed budget to include emphasis on paving, parks, and housing.  Officials say the upgrade in the city's revenue forecast is related to a considerable increase in business-license tax collections.
