The City of Bend says it won’t ask auditors to look into hunting trips for public works employees. Mayor Jeff Eager asked for the investigation after learning that "Consolidated Supply Company" had paid for several such trips. The City has contracts with the company. City Manager Eric King was on 1110 KBND's “Your Town” this Thursday and provides background: “We had received some allegations from an anonymous individual about an employee that went on a hunting trip about 5 or 6 years ago and we investigated that we disciplined the employee involved. We looked at our contracting processes; we've actually changed our contracting processes a couple of years ago to have more contracts come to council and really just did a complete overhaul."   King says the revision of how the City handles those contracts was already in the works and separate from the complaint. Wednesday members of the Bend Audit Committee learned that the audit would have cost around $8000, and decided against the expense.
