Bend City Council looks to add to snow removal funds

By RL

The Bend City Council will meet this evening and look to bolster funding once again for snow removal if needed in the next couple of months. So far this winter the city road department has spent 672 thousand dollars to hire contractors to help in plowing city streets which is about 3 times more than what was budgeted. They are now asking for another 120 thousand should conditions warrant.
