It’s estimated to cost as much as $170 million: a huge Bend sewer project. Friday in Bend, citizens can find out more about the huge idea at a special Chamber Town Hall breakfast. City Manager Eric King says they don't have the money to pay for the whole thing in the near future.  "What most likely is an outcome is a focused public improvement program, where we focus with our infrastructure improvements on a specific area of town,  the goal is to have shovel ready employment land. That’s what Bend is deficient in, and without that, land prices go high, we become less competitive. And we don’t attract the type of businesses that we want here to continue to diversify the economy." King says they are also trying to find ways to pay for necessary improvements without a huge increase to local sewer rates. The Bend Chamber Breakfast meeting on the sewer system for Bend is at 7:30 at the Bend Golf & Country Club.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
