TriMet Considers Even More Borrowing for Milwaukie

Back in May I complained that TriMet was getting ready to borrow $39M to fund the new Milwaukie line. This borrowing would be paid back with future payroll tax revenues – funds that could otherwise be spent actually providing service hours.

Now Portland Afoot is reporting that TriMet may consider raising this amount to $60M to get the project done.

There has to be a better way.
