I hear the Bend, Oregon city council is having a tussle over the cost of filling potholes and patching city streets. Apparently the council can’t decide where the money will come from. (Rumor has it the city’s road funds were diverted to “other” projects.)
I’m told the council tabled the road repair discussion and turned to a subject they could really do something about: Global Warming. For only $86,000 Bend can hire a half-time Global Warming expert.
Hmm. I wonder how many potholes $86,000 would take care of? Or are potholes the answer to Global Warming after all? They certainly discourage me from driving Bend city streets.
