The Bend City Council has decided to move forward with its plans for Surface Water Improvement Project.  But the Political Action Committee formed to fight the plan is still against it. Organizers say they are raising money and are waiting until all the candidates file for City Council by August, before choosing the candidates they'll support. Ray Taylor is a retired water utility executive from California that supports the PAC's effort to get councilors to change their mind about the plan. “In my opinion and the opinion of a lot of other people, we're spending a lot of money to treat water that has an adequate groundwater supply that could be updated or expanded that would cost half as much money or less.” Taylor favors a groundwater only approach for the City's water supply. He says it's cheaper, easy to operate, flexible and responsive to the community's needs.
