The Bend City Council is considering sweeping changes to dog licensing and animal control issues.  At Wednesday night's Bend City Council Work Session, Police Chief Jeff Sale presented a couple of options to reign in what is a $16,000 deficit into a program that could easily generate funds. Right now, all dogs in the City must be licensed through Deschutes County. "That revenue is roughly $160,000, we get back $34,000 of that. What we're looking to do is change the way that we are handling these animals and change the way that the licensing works inside the City of Bend." Sale says there are about 80,000 dogs in the city, and only 8800 are licensed right now. Sale presented two options: one would used the Humane Society of Central Oregon as a subcontractor for obtaining licenses and collecting impound fees for problem dogs, or to establish a new city licensing program. The Council directed sale to "flesh out" both options and bring his recommendations to a future meeting.
