The Bend Chamber of Commerce is supporting the City Council's move to suspend the sewer extra strength charge. The fee is aimed at businesses that generate a lot of waste, and it aims to recoup some costs associated with treating it. Chamber spokesperson Courtney Linville says the Chamber is glad that the City will delay the charge until they figure out a fair way to assess the fee. "The sewer extra strength charge is an extra fee that only 12 businesses in Bend pay; Deschutes Brewery, some mechanics shops, and different things. And it’s just a charge because of the extra waste that these businesses do produce.” The Council passed the "resolution" last Wednesday. It gives the City a year to work with local businesses and do more research figure out the best way to handle the "extra strength charge".
