Deschutes County is looking pretty good so far in 2012.  Commissioner Tammy Baney says she and Tony DeBone are looking forward to addressing the Bend Chamber of Commerce Town Hall breakfast with the "State of the County" talk Thursday morning.  She says the county is taking advantage of sharing some project with the City of Bend at a cost savings to both.  "I think the most important this is that we've been able to keep on without having to make catastrophic layoffs across the board.  We've had the traditional ebb and flo with federal funding; and that means staffing will ebb and flo.  We've been trying our darndest to right-size our Building Department. But I think out biggest success are some of the shared services opportunities that we've had."  Baney says they will talk about the possibility of more shared services with the city and how that will affect both the County and Bend.  The Town Hall breakfast this Thursday at the Bend Golf and County Club beginning at 7:30 a.m.
