(Portland, OR)  --  The Portland Public Schools district will soon decide how voters will be asked to come up with funding to improve and repair school buildings.  PPS staff is holding four public town hall-styled meetings this month to get input on which plan would go before voters, perhaps as early as this May.  Officials say the projects will certainly include replacing lead pipes and fixtures to improve water quality, replacing tiles, and shoring up general infrastructure at schools throughout the district.  PPS Interim Chief Operating Officer Courtney Wilton tells KATU-TV the bond measure would likely cost homeowners around 24 dollars per month per household over a 30-year period.
