Forty homeowners have fought those plans for months saying it would take away thier water feature and hurt their property values.

 

The Central Oregon Irrigation District says it needs to conserve water and since this particular canal leaks quite a bit, piping it would help them do that.

 

Homeowner Tom Hignell was at the meeting telling the commissioenrs piping is a bad idea.  He says city councilors who support piping , don't have all the facts.

 

"One of them is it won't affect our property values.  We have statements from the assessor and real estate agents saying it definitely will have a negative effect on property values.  With a 9 foot pipe covered  with pea gravel and weeds. Try doing that  along Mirror Pond which is another place where property owners live along the sides there."

 

No decision was made Wednesday night, but county commissioenrs plan to have a work session on the issue and will make the final decision on whether the canal is piped.
