It's Called Street Smarts 

Is it time for the City of Bend to file bankruptcy and outsource all services to private contractors?

Is it time for the City of Bend to file bankruptcy and outsource all services to private contractors?

The idea occurred to me as I read about the $34 million that the City will have to find to comply with the DOJ settlement demanding thousands of curb ramps be brought up to ADA (American's with Disabilities Act) standards. I am all for access, but something got lost in the process.

I looked around my neighborhood and didn't find it.

I checked downtown, calling and calling...the way you'd try to find your lost dog: still no answer.

It seems that no one has been able to include it in all the discussion about these ramps. So I'm turning to the readers of the Source and I'm asking: "Common Sense...WHERE ARE YOU?"
