Bend City Councilor Mark Capell just met with the CEO of Pacific Power that owns the dam last week and is encouraged they will be able to work something out to satisfy most people.
"What we're trying to do is come up with a public-private partnership of some sort to answer the question, the community is really divided on what to do with Mirror Pond -- river or a pond. The one thing that people feel really strongly about is they don't want to spend any money and with a public-private partnership we can accomplish that as well.
Councilor Capell is part of the Mirror Pond Ad Hoc committee tasked with deciding what to do with Mirror Pond.
Capell expects to have designs for the public to look at and offer input on in the next couple weeks.
