How would you raise $1 million for city streets?

Street maintenance funding shortfalls mean Pendleton’s streets get worse each year. The City Council is committed to raising an additional $1 million for per year for street maintenance bringing our total street maintenance budget up to a little over $2.2 million per year. At this level, we can get the majority of our streets into Good condition within the next 10 years and maintain them at that level thereafter. This will assure the most cost-effective use of public funds for street maintenance.
