The City of Portland plans to sell more than $15 million dollars in general obligation bonds next week in order to fix up the city’s main fire station on Naito Parkway.
The sale is the last of a series of bonds issued as part of a 53 million dollar measure approved by taxpayers in 1998.
Besides being an inopportune time to dip into the bond market, KBOO reporter David Rosenfeld explains how the bond sale comes with news about the city’s increasing debt obligations.

This morning US Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson announced that some of the massive bailout package could be used to help consumers.
In his remarks, Paulson acknowledged that the bailout hasn’t delivered what he promised, when he asked Congress for the money last month.
He tried to make the case for the continuation of bank buyouts, but decided against the government buying devalued mortgages.
Dedrick Muhammed, with the Institute for Policy Studies, believes that what Paulson proposes is just more of the same.
