(Gresham, OR) -- A city fee that helps fund public safety in Gresham will remain in place. The Gresham City Council has voted to renew the seven-dollar-50-cent monthly utility fee and make it permanent. Keeping the fee in effect will help stave off cuts to police and fire services. Voters in Gresham recently defeated a property-tax increase to fund public safety services.
