The Bend City Council will take up a new plan to cut back on its Surface Water Improvement Project at their meeting this Wednesday. The plan delays some aspects of the project; saving about $30 million. But opponents like Bruce Aylward, who formed a Political Action Committee against the project, says the Council is not in a position to make any final decisions. They don't have all the information.  “They've already spent $6.5 million dollars of our money so far on this project and I suspect it will never be built. They should put everything on hold and reassess it when we hear back from the state.” The state still hasn't decided whether the City will be able to get an extension on meeting EPA deadlines of April of 2014 to meet water treatment requirements.
