I’d pay just to have our street passable period, when the snow and ice melts get out there and plow it off instead of letting it freeze at night where you can’t even drive or keep your car in the trac

I have a business and the berms block the walkway and driveway to that business. The berm is mainly ice and dirt which is hard to remove by hand.

I end up paying someone to take out the berm--it would be more convenient if they would just do it as part of the plowing.

taxes are too high already. Berm removal should be included at current taxes

Icity staff & contractors are well paid to do the job which should not include blocking drive ways; the drive way access snow should be dumped between drives.The roundabouts reflect poor work.

If a person can't shovel the berm, ask your neighbor, to do to it for a couple bucks.

Clean up the corruption in this town first and there would be plenty of money for many other improvements also like road repair.

We choose to live in a place where it SNOWS! Shoveling a berm may be a pain, but it's part of the wonder of being able to living here!

Because taxes in Bend are astronomical, as it is. I vote NO for anything to do with raising taxes!

Bend gets millions in tax money from the MJ rec and medical sales. They can afford to pay for it.

It's always busy, but I usually need help later in the evening. 10 pm until 2 am sucks though.
