Portland street fee: Where does the city spend $102.8 million a year currently? [The Oregonian, Portland, Ore. :: ]
(Oregonian (Portland, OR) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) July 10--A rallying cry of sorts emerged at two recent town halls in Portland to discuss a controversial monthly street fee on residents and business: Spend the money between the curbs.
As Mayor Charlie Hales and Commissioner Steve Novick campaign for more cash to spend on road safety and maintenance projects with an eye on a November City Council vote, the "between the curbs" theme could continue to gain steam.
Portland Bureau of Transportation officials have said for weeks that they lack the resources to maintain streets. In a budget briefing with a small group of reporters on Wednesday, PBOT opened its books and made its case.
The city is hoping a new funding stream could bring in up to $50 million annually, starting in July 2015.
Here are some facts and terms to keep in mind as Hales and Novick continue to push for more money for city streets.
HOW MUCH DOES PBOT HAVE TO SPEND?
The transportation bureau has a total of $314.3 million in revenue, but the vast majority of that amount can only be spent for specified purposes. An example is when the Bureau of Environmental Services pays PBOT to install bioswales as part of a paving project. Other dedicated funds include federal or state grants with strings attached.
The money over which PBOT has discretion is called General Transportation Revenue. It includes gas tax money from the state and Multnomah County. On-street parking revenue and utility license fees revenue also fill this pot of money. According to PBOT analysts, the current GTR total is $102.8 million.
IS THAT ALL THE DISCRETIONARY MONEY PBOT HAS?
No -- the city transferred an additional $7.7 million to PBOT from the general fund this year. The general fund is a pool of money, made up primarily of property taxes and business license fees, which pays for police parks and fire. According to PBOT, nearly all of its $7.7 million in general fund revenue is spent on the city's power bill for street lighting.
HOW MUCH OF PBOT'S MONEY IS CURRENTLY SPENT ON PAVEMENT MAINTENANCE EXCLUSIVELY ?
The current budget includes $11.3 million in direct costs for pavement maintenance work between the curbs from PBOT. The city recently completed the mayor's goal of paving, sealing or repairing 100 miles of roadway in the city.
OK, WHERE'S THE REST OF THE MONEY GO?
Good question. Some $16.4 million of the discretionary dollars are spoken for in debt service payments, contingency funds and payments for overhead associated with money received through the City of Portland's General Fund. PBOT maintains all hundreds of street lights, traffic lights and bridges. The traffic control system alone tops $20.7 million in costs annually. "We actually spend more money on maintenance of signals / street lights, etc. -- traffic control -- than on pavement," Novick said in an email. Although city-owned parking meters and garages generate revenue, maintaining and operating them also costs a lot, PBOT says.
HOW MUCH ARE WE PAYING FOR LIGHT RAIL AND THE SELLWOOD BRIDGE?
In 2014-15, Portland will contribute $2.5 million to the Milwaukie line rail line. The city's payments on a 20-year, $86 million bond for its share of the Sellwood Bridge replacement project is $3.7 million this year but will rise to $6.4 million in the next fiscal year (not including interest). Payments will remain at or above that level until 2033-34, according to city records.
WHAT ABOUT THE STREETCAR?
Portland Streetcar Inc., a private nonprofit, operates the system with a combination of TriMet support, general fund revenue, fares, corporate sponsorships and PBOT funding. The city's share of operations and maintenance costs for the streetcar is currently $4.5 million, PBOT officials said, plus an additional $2 million in ongoing debt service payments. The bureau is expected to chip in an additional $6 million in 2015-16 to help complete the streetcar loop on the eastside. Paying cash rather than issuing debt, officials say, saves the city $3.6 million in interest over a 20-year period.
HOW IS PBOT DOING OVERALL?
PBOT officials said the bureau runs a $1 million annual deficit because revenue isn't keeping up with expenses. Officials say the state gas tax hasn't kept up with inflation. "We're not able to do as much with the same number of dollars," said Dylan Rivera, PBOT spokesman. Since 2008-2009, PBOT cut 75 staff positions.
OKAY, DIDN'T HALES SAY WE NEED $91 MILLION EACH YEAR TO GET OUR STREETS RIGHT?
He did. According to PBOT documents, the total is closer to $92.7 million. In order to prevent further deterioration of streets, the forecast calls for $47.6 million in maintenance work on major roads this year, and $44 million on neighborhood streets. The current budget includes just $11.3 million for that purpose from PBOT. This amount omits an additional $62.5 million in needed improvements to city-owned bridges, signals, sidewalks and street lights.
PBOT gave reporters a detailed list of spending for 2014-15, compared with some previous years. For those interested in digging deep, here's the full PDF given to reporters by PBOT. This document includes the definitions for each of the city's program areas.

Upon completion of the initial environmental analysis, the projects are assigned to PMD to develop, design and construct. PMD often works with multiple outside agencies to develop project funding partnerships on many of our projects. PBOT has a very close relationship with the Port of Portland, the Portland Development Commission, ODOT, and Tri-Met. PBOT recently became certified to bid, award, and construct federally funded projects.

DS-SSM Division enables public and private development which leads to jobs creation, housing construction, and enhanced neighborhood livability through regulation and permitting of development activities. The outcomes affect the transportation system by constructing and managing the street system, property frontages utilities, and use of the street right- of-way for enhanced livability. Development-Street Systems Management programs are primarily funded by cost recovery of development fees and permits. $370,500
39 Traffic Signals. This program maintains and operates a centralized computer system, which monitors and controls the operation of our signalized intersections and their associated traffic operations.

Each inspection generates a report which is used as the basis by the program's Engineers to design and prioritize repairs for these assets. Bridges and Structures engineers meet routinely with Maintenance Operations Supervisors to assist them in prioritizing maintenance needs for these assets, as well as inspecting the critical repairs during construction. The program also responds to critical landslides and when required can design, mitigate and repair landslide hazards in the Right of Way. $310,700
