2 Funding Issues Limited resources over the last decade or more have created a backlog of maintenance needs Limited resources over the last decade or more have created a backlog of maintenance needs Street maintenance funds have often been prioritized for street sections that carry more traffic or are related to a utility project Street maintenance funds have often been prioritized for street sections that carry more traffic or are related to a utility project Since 2002, 60% of streets have deteriorated from Very Good/Good condition to Fair/Poor Since 2002, 60% of streets have deteriorated from Very Good/Good condition to Fair/Poor

8 Potential New Revenue Sources NW Natural Gas franchise fee: currently $87,000 goes to General Fund. If it was dedicated to Street Fund due to their adverse impacts on street systems, lost revenue would need to be replaced for General Fund or General Fund would need to be decreased by same amount.

9 Potential New Revenue Sources Dedicated funding for streetlights: street light expenses are proposed to be $90,953 for 2013/14. We could either transfer from General Fund like some cities do, or operate street lighting as a utility and add it on utility bill like was done for storm water. If transferred from General Fund, would need to either replace lost revenue or decrease General Fund. Dedicated funding for streetlights: street light expenses are proposed to be $90,953 for 2013/14.

10 Potential New Revenue Sources Implement a Telecom Tax: several cities have adopted or are considering a Telecom Tax that could replace the revenues lost from the General Fund in either of the first two options listed above. We’ve estimated that a 7% Telecom Tax would raise about $180,000/year.

11 Potential New Revenue Sources NWC PUD franchise fee: the current PUD franchise fee is 3% where most cities tax local utilities 5%. Each ½% raises approximately $115,000. This could replace the revenue lost by the General Fund if Natural Gas fees were dedicated to the Street Fund. If PUD fee is increased, we should consider raising the 3% that our Water/Sewer utilities pay; each ½% increase would raise an additional $47,000. Recently adopted Water and Sewer rate schedules assumed 3% transfers to Street Fund. NWC PUD franchise fee: the current PUD franchise fee is 3% where most cities tax local utilities 5%.

12 Potential New Revenue Sources Chenowith Water PUD franchise fee: City could charge the Chenowith Water PUD a franchise fee for services rendered over City rights-of-way. Under the same concept, the City Water Fund is charged 3%. A franchise fee of 3% would raise approximately $28,000/year.

13 Potential New Revenue Sources Local 3-cent Gas Tax: the City’s local gas tax raises about $150,000 per cent of tax for Street Fund operations. The current rate of 3 cents/gallon was set in the mid- 1980s and has not been changed. The Oregon 2009 Transportation Bill prevents the City from increasing its local gas tax rate until after However, at that time, local gas tax increases could be considered.
