(Portland, OR) -- City officials say fiscal responsibility and higher-than-expected tax revenues will provide Portland with an additional ten-and-a-half-million dollars to spend this year. It's the first time in a decade the city has had a budget surplus to work with. Mayor Charlie Hales says he'd like to spend a portion of the money on new school students, aid for the homeless, and emergency preparedness.
