Bend City Councilors will revisit the issue of whether to elect the City's Mayor. Last summer in a close vote, the Council decided not to bring the issue to the voters. But City Councilor Jodie Barram said at the time, she wanted to bring the issue up again in the new year; and it's on the agenda for their next Council meeting, January 18th. “We are not advocating changing the form of government.  It will still be Council Manager. There is power and authority perceived in being Mayor especially when traveling to other areas. The Mayor does speak on behalf of the citizens. We do want the people to decide whether they want to elect the highest post.” Barram, Jim Clinton and Jeff Eager support letting the voters decide. Mark Cappell was against it because they believed the election would cost the City money. But if it's put on the May ballot, it wouldn't cost the City anything.
