The city of Eugene was among the 100 investors that put money into a Washington regional events center that defaulted on $41.8 million of bonds in early December, according to a published report.

Eugene officials, who said it is the first time in memory the city has had a default on an investment, are hopeful the $175,000 it invested will be repaid, according to the Eugene Register-Guard. The city has received $40,312 in interest payments on the investment, the report said.
