Local News


A survey of small business owners gives Oregon a failing grade for parts of its business climate.  “Thumbtack” is a website that helps local businesses hire local people.  They surveyed 6000 small business owners from around the country.  They found Oregon was the third most expensive state in the country for hiring employees.  Tim Casey, the President of the Bend Chamber of Commerce, says system development fees can be a deterrent to building a new building. “Imagine how many cups of coffee you'd have to see, for $100,000 to $200,000 in SDF fees.  Investors need to pay attention to the new incoming council members to see if they're business friendly.  Economic growth is going to help us all in the community.”  Casey is seeing an up uptick in business in the first quarter of the year.  He also finds attitudes are much better than they've been in the last several years
